I don't usually take in stories about Naomi Campbell's reign of terror. A headline that begins 'Naomi Assaults....' is just, to me, further evidence that the cosmos is proceeding smoothly along its ordained path. I have only just discovered, therefore, that the latest person she seems to have attacked is her own drugs counsellor. Somebody brought in to solve one of Naomi's problems only succeeds in exacerbating another. Has she ever punched her anger management counsellor or attempted to drown her swimming instructor? Such hermetic circularity would suggest some wider plan. Is it possible that Naomi has Zen-like depths, that this is all some kind of elaborate Koan? Probably not, but it does suggest to me another six worder: ''Come in,' smiled Naomi. Biff! 'Aaaaaargh!''
