      WP seems so broken. Goodnight. To have been so near, and yet so far away.. God go with our President, and hold him close to Your Heart.

    Thanks, LL! Can’t wait to see what side of the Elvis Costello phenomenon that Nerdy Wonka is on. 🙂

      Elvis C. is the Cole Porter of the Rock Age.

        Agree. Although I’ve clearly never given it as much thought as you have. Ha!

        Yes! Love me some Elvis Costello from way back in the day ever since I heard this song for the first time…. It also still tickles me that he and Diana Krall are a happily married couple with kids. Is she going to join him onstage at the Bowl do ya think? I’ve seen her numerous times at the Bowl over the years during the summer jazz series……

            Hmmm, interesting well with the Phil part of the gig, maybe he’ll do some of the stuff he did with Burt Bacharach…. Jealous! 🙂

              I was in love with someone other than my missus during the C.-B. collaboration. Broke my heart.

    Ms. America who was at the Easter Egg event at the White House Monday, tweeted this: Thought for days of what to say to @Michelle Obama she lead with “So I hear you got some kid suspended #Priceless (sic).
