Houston, we have a ‘Twitter problem’

Katrina vanden Heuvel, the smart editor and publisher of the magazine The Nation, is visiting Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands. The city, the home of master Dutch painter Rembrandt, is one of Europe's most popular tourist destinations. There are no end to pleasurable diversions. What does vanden Heuvel do? Log into Twitter: "Okay, in Amsterdam, heading out 4 night, w/ hubbie obsessed about Kentucky v. Louisville game. Can't take KY out of the boy/:)" Really, Katrina? Turn the damn iPhone off. You're in Europe. Live a little. (Drawing: Rembrandt, Self-portrait in a cap, with eyes wide open, etching and burin, 1630.)
