The court forced her to make do with a pitiful million, plus interest. New York Times foreign affairs columnist Thomas Friedman, for example, when berated by Bill O'Reilly from the right and the Washington Monthly from the left, can sob into a pillow at the .5 million, 11,400-square-foot house he owns with his wife Ann Bucksbaum, a shopping-center heiress.
