Really great Wall Street Journal article … October 26-27, 2019 … “Notes of the Notables,” by Erika Berlin and Matthew Kitchen.

So who are the notables? Johnny Cash. Thelonious Monk. Nora Ephron. Charles Dickens. Grace Jones. Charles Darwin. Marilyn Monroe. James Naismith. Benjamin Branklin. George Lucas.

Nora Ephron wrote a list about what she’d miss after she died. That’s pretty damn cool, I think. Check the article to find out what she’d miss the most.

What was George Lucas’ list about? Alternative titles for his film “American Graffiti.” Wow are some of them ever really weird!!!!

Thelonious Monk wrote 25 handwritten tips for his bandmates. “You’ve got to dig it to dig it, you dig?”
