I sign off only in this ritualized version of e-mail, not in real life. (Although when you instant message, I find, you really have to sign off, or you seem rude.) But anyhow, here, now, I'll stop.

Kurt Andersen was architecture critic for Time, co-founder of Spy, and editor of New York magazine. He now writes for The New Yorker, and his best-selling first novel, Turn of the Century, was published in May (click here to buy it). Nora Ephron is a screenwriter and director. Her films include Sleepless in Seattle, Michael and, most recently, You’ve Got Mail.
