General Admission


News flash: Bobby Short has made the Social Register! Well, news to the New York Times, at least, which recently reported on Short's seemingly unlikely inclusion in the bible of blue-bloods even though the latest edition came out last November. (Getting on the list, which has been published since 1886, is a mysterious process involving sponsors' letters, a secretive advisory committee, and a willingness to be included in the nation's most exclusive phone directory.) But as long as the Times is suddenly keeping score, here's the rest of the news:

  • Newly out: The vice-president's daughter Karenna Gore, now Mrs. Andrew Schiff.
  • Still out: John F. Kennedy Jr. and Caroline Schlossberg (they haven't been in the Register since shortly after Jackie's death).
  • Still in: General Colin Powell (pictured; in since 1997), along with former Viacom CEO Frank Biondi (in since 1992, when he still lived in the Bronx), apparently unharmed by his periodic bouts of unemployment.
  • Newly in: The Prince of Chintz, Mario Buatta, of the Staten Island Buattas. "It's nice to be included," says the irrepressible decorator. "It's one up for the Italians."
