one measure of the depth of my depression is the fact that I forgot that yesterday was Carmen Miranda's 100th birthday.
altho synchonistically she was on my mind & even in my e-mails.
2 decades ago I threw a big party for her 80th. one of the guests -- Tom Beckett -- referencd that joyous evening in "Prolegomena to the Study of Great Cartoons." if I summon the strength today I'll search for some of the photos.
