For 20 years after his military service in Vietnam ended in 1968, Morgan Monceaux roamed the country working odd jobs -- short-order cook, gas-station attendant, janitor. When he got bored, he'd pick up and move to the next place. He wandered from Washing-ton state to Florida and to points in between. He hitched rides and slept wherever he could lay his head. He dug meals out of dumpsters; for a while he was homeless. Then in 1990, when he was 43, he began to paint. He was living in an abandoned building in the South Bronx in New York City.

HIGH POINT, N.C. -- The folks at Martha Stewart Living say it happens all the time. Someone will write, call or e-mail saying she just must have the sofa or the table or the mirror pictured in the magazine. Many of those pieces are part of Stewart's own collection, filling her stone house on the Maine coast or her 19th-century home on the eastern shore of Long Island. They often are antiques or one-of-a-kind items, not available in typical furniture stores. Until now. Stewart's first venture into furniture was unveiled recently at the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point with the 175-piece Martha Stewart Signature collection by Bernhardt.

ONE wonders what the snootiest of the Hamptons people think about the recent shooting that took place at Club New York when Sean "Puffy" Combs' entourage scraped up against some other knuckleheads, and three bystanders were wounded. Society has changed. Wealthy people spent many years trying to keep minorities at a distance. Now they fret over whether they'll be invited to Mr. Combs' East Hampton summer party. During Prohibition, such people used to invite immigrant gangsters up to their Park Avenue parties.

Erin Callan was the face of Lehman Brothers in 2008 as it battled insolvency rumors. Fresh, pretty, smart and confidently articulate, she worked feverishly to try to talk nervous investors out of jumping ship. But when the company imploded in 2008, she did, too. After taking a couple of place-holder jobs, she disappeared. The most powerful woman on Wall Street before it all came tumbling down was only 41. The New York gossips eventually found her in East Hampton, in what passes for a cottage in the woods there, taking spin classes and living on the cash-in of her Lehman shares, now married to a high-school classmate, a handsome New York City firefighter.
