Michelle Williams with NYRB

The leading actors, Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, barely put a foot wrong

Williams is a big reader of poetry and collects first editions of books—one of her prized possessions is a first edition of The Great Gatsby—so I foraged around in the poetry stacks of a used-book store near her house in Brooklyn and found a first-edition Ferlinghetti to give her as well as a selection of poems by my first mentor in New York City, the late Howard Moss, who for 40 years was the poetry editor of The New Yorker. As we settled onto the sofa in front of the fireplace on the second floor of the house she had shared with Heath in their happier days, I presented her with her gifts. A gasp escaped her as she saw the Howard Moss book. Her eyes had already begun to mist as she ran her finger down the Table of Contents through the myriad titles and allowed it to come to rest at one of Moss’ most beautiful poems, “The Pruned Tree.” She turned to its page. There was one tear. Then there were two. But that was all. She flicked them away. It was her smile that now registered such wonder.

Kevin J. Martin, 45, an osteopathic physician said that it was Busch who told him Adrienne was taking the Trazodone, and that he “was surprised” because he discovered she had a heart condition — Long QT syndrome — in a test he administered in 2002. The syndrome can potentially cause fast, chaotic heartbeats. Trazodone is a prescription drug used to treat depression but also sometimes used to treat insomnia, according to the National Institutes of Health.
Kevin Martin said when someone has a heart condition, “you can’t take Trazodone.” A Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine is licensed to prescribe and perform all diagnostic tests and is trained in manual medicine to treat all parts of the body from head to toe. Osteopathic physicians are permitted to prescribe controlled substances. Busch filed for divorce from his wife of two years, Kathryn Thatcher, on November 26, 2008 following the merger of Anheuser Busch and InBev on November 18. Busch, 44, was named president and CEO of Anheuser Busch in December of 2006. Fortune suggested that marriage to the Boston College graduate may have been a condition of Busch’s appointment to the position while his father, chairman August Busch III, and the board of directors controlled the company.
