Another Thought About Re-Re

images-13images-16Say what you will about Aretha Franklin‘s performance today at the Inaugural: she’s certainly got people talking. To those people who think of her as a big-boned relic, or that her voice isn’t what it used to be, I’d say: Now that Eartha Kitt is gone, Aretha and Carol Channing (pictured) are the only show-biz cartoons left roaming the earth. With this difference: Carol knows she’s a cartoon, and loves that fact. Aretha thinks she’s Audrey Hepburn in “Funny Face.” Which only makes her more of a cartoon.
