Karl Rove vs. Sheryl Crow: The White House Correspondents' Dinner

Showbiz friends and environmentalists Sheryl Crow and Laurie David (Seinfeld producer Larry David's wife) got in a heated debate with Karl Rove over environmental issues at the White House Correspondents' dinner in Washington, DC on the weekend. The twosome apparently approached Rove to try to convince him to "look at the science of global warming," when according to David, Rove got combative and started throwing a tantrum. Rove said the two " came over to insult him and they succeeded." In other exciting news that went down at the dinner, the governor of New York, Eliot Spitzer was shoo'd away when asking for Sanjaya Malakar's autograph.

To set the record straight, the other night, we approached Mr. Rove at a dinner designed specifically to encourage conversations between people from different worlds. We were riding a wave of excitement having just come from talking to college students across the country about global warming. Obviously, we were very surprised that Mr. Rove found discussing such an important issue to be insulting.


I also like the idea of not using paper napkins, which happen to be made from virgin wood and represent the height of wastefulness. I have designed a clothing line that has what's called a "dining sleeve."
