AN INTERVIEW WITH TIMES INC. GENERAL COUNSEL Robert McCarthy illustrates just how sensitive questions to the news media about subpoenas from Kenneth Starr and other independent counsels can be.
Asked whether Time magazine had received any subpoenas from an independent counsel, McCarthy said, ``We get subpoenas all the time from various people, including independent counsels."
Has Time received a subpoena from Starr? ``I can't comment," he said.
Has Time received a subpoena from any independent counsel since Clinton has been president? ``I don't have a complete recollection. I wouldn't be surprised, [but] I don't know for a fact."
Would he check? ``No, I don't have the time.... I'm not sure we would want to disclose the information" anyway. ``I can say we haven't gotten anything in the last two weeks," he said in a March 4 conversation that included a discussion of the recent Sidney Blumenthal subpoena.
Have you ever received a subpoena from Starr? ``I don't know for sure," he replied, explaining he wouldn't comment even if he had. Why not? ``If we were going to comment about it, we would already have done so."

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
