A friend and I went to see Justin Vivian Bond's concert at the Great American Music Hall tonight. The Whoa Nellies were her opening act, and the whole show was faaaaabulous. (If you've seen the movie Short Bus, you're familiar with JVB-- she was the mistress of Short Bus.)
At one point in the show, she said that since she was in California, she should do a song by a Californian. If she was going to do a song by a Californian, she should do one by the greatest Californian who ever lived.
My friend and I looked at each other and in astonishingly perfect unison said, "Ronald Reagan?"
