Thanks to my guests for blessing the space on this sparsely-populated Saturday afternoon: Melissa Lafsky, Jozen Cummings, Abiola Abrams. All of them very attractive and charming.

Thanks to Sonia Sotomayor for making history. And The Bronx for providing the rags in her rags-to-riches narrative. Everyone always forgets the rags!
