Anyway. Julia Child, Fay Wray, and Manuel Maloof all passed away last week. The latter one, Manuel Maloof, was not as famous as Julia or Fay, but he was possibly as influential, a Democrat who ran a bar in Atlanta where he championed the passionate outpouring of political speech, who had an open and caring heart and who (when he ran for and won public office) kept that same intimacy, openness, and personal care for the people he served.
It would be interesting to hear their conversation in the anteroom. Probably something about good food.
