Dear Cupid, Make Sure to Hit Both!
This year more than any other I can recall, beware the middle of February. We're in a hurly-burly with power and amorous pursuits all laid bare. But that won't stop us today from appreciating human affection the way, say, the Gershwins of Bloomingdale did? While I won't miss the "Jonathan Hour" for a heartbeat, I do have a softspot for a good jazzy love song, preferably one with a little brass. So for this, I turn to the Duke. That's right, Duke Ellington Boulevard's namesake...the regal one himself, Edward Kennedy Ellington.
Happy Valentine's Day, neighbors. Apace we go to the vernal equinox. Hang in there!
