Political/musical discovery of the afternoon


So I'm sitting at my desk, blithely bopping along to the cast album of Annie, and suddenly FDR bellows "Harold Ickes, stand up and sing!" What?? Some quick Wikipedia-ing turned up the fact that, indeed, Harold L. Ickes, the father of Clintonite Harold M. Ickes, was FDR's Secretary of the Interior and has a big part in the Cabinet scene in Annie. Hee!

(Bonus discovery! While writing the above, I found that there's an actual mineral called Clintonite.)

CRAMPTON HODNET by barbara pym -- hilarious wonderful book about romances and life in oxford in the 1930s or is it 1950s? whatever. very funny book.
