Cambridge, MA. September, 2013


I couldn’t help myself. I was at a party thrown by my friend Michael Bronski upon the publication of his (along with friend Michael Amico and Ann Pellegrini) new book, You Can Tell Just by Looking. I spotted this LP by Rusty Warren, a foul-mouthed entertainer who peaked in the 1950s. Michael, who has more LPs than anyone I know and who knows more about entertainers from the ‘50s than anyone I know, told me that Warren reportedly was a lesbian who’d been in a long-time relationship with Elaine Noble (an activist/politician that every Boston-area resident of a certain age remembers.) You learn something new every day. (Thank you, Jim Farley, for the photo.)

    Sandy, I remember you from your days volunteering at the AAC hotline. There's not room for 3 spotlight divas in this room!

    1. "One spotlight queen per shift" is what you said to me at the close of our first evening together on the phones. Funny, I was just thinking about you yesterday as I came across "your" interview with Surgeon General Koop in 'GBH Magazine. Remember that?
