What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Lauren Bush Lauren (nickname: “LBL”)

Lauren Bush Lauren 500President George H. W. Bush’s model and designer turned philanthropist granddaughter became “Lauren Lauren” when she married David Lauren, son of Ralph Lauren, in 2011. The union was described as the merger of two families who are “public but private” and of why she named her own fashion label “Lauren Pierce”, Princeton educated Bush Lauren commented: “Obviously my last name is associated with politics. But Pierce is my grandmother’s maiden name and my younger brother’s name. It’s not about downplaying my last name as much as it is about loving Pierce. And my brother is very flattered”. It’s most definitely all in the name.

  1. Matthew: Thank you for sharing information about this delightful young lady. I came across her in New York at a fundraiser and I must say for someone so young, she’s got her priorities sorted perfectly. If only others of her age were so dedicated to helping others.

  2. I don’t want to appear snide, but everybody seems to self describe or be described as a ‘philanthropist’ these days.
    Now I give a little money to charity does entitle me to describe myself as one?
    The other thing that perplexed me was that the Bush and Lauren families describe themselves as ‘public but private’…only Americans could come up with that confection!
    Still, Lauren has done well. From working class Jewish Brooklyn to an alliance with the Bush family….only in the US of A!

  3. It is very fortunate that Ralphie changed his name to Lauren from Lifshitz
    I don’t think that the Bush family would have liked their daughter being called Lauren Lifshitz…….

  4. My late father was also a philanthropist, but it was based on the instructions and recommendations from his very able accountant. There is a method to the madness of the very wealthy. Another Hymietown success. The Reverent Jesse Jackson must be fuming with rage and hate. It is acceptable for him to spread anti Semitism.
