What would the Old West sound like without Aaron Copland: a gay, Jewish, communist-leaning, immigrant New Yorker?
- Guy on the street: “Yo, are you Jewish?” Me, dressed completely in old west getup: “What gave it away?”
- Esma Redžepova, my (former) favorite, loses Eurovision b/c it’s “been taken over by those who run gay pride parades”. esctoday.com/64696/f-y-r-ma…
- I’ve noticed a lot of us Democrat-leaning liberal-ish Bay Area types have gotten less fat since election ’08. Coincidence?
- “I’m Jewish, actually.” “Really — my yentshmiel was a babbitz.” *squints* *nod of grudging respect*
