Primary results, the Donald puts up cash against Gillibrand, glowing hot fork torture, Van Dyck headed for sale

Hillary Clinton got the most votes in yesterday's New York Democratic presidential primary. While the total vote count is important, the number of delegates won is even more so.

As for the Republicans, John McCain won big and the GOP keeps things simple -- winner pretty much takes all. [NYT]

Donald Trump has even thrown some money behind one of the potential challengers. Gillibrand has raised the most money so far, though -- some of it coming from the Zagats (of guide fame).
