Rosemary Clooney lived in George Gershwin's house, next to Ira Gershwin's house, on North Roxbury Drive in Beverly Hills. I spent a good deal of time in that house, playing George's piano, eating pasta with Rosie, drinking whiskey with Rosie, and talking with her until late at night.

My son will be 27 in a week or so. He lives in the West with a girl named Kerri. Adam is reasonable, socially comfortable, generous, and wickedly funny. He was 12 when he told me, as I drove him downtown, that he wanted to be a comedian when he grew up. At that moment, an immaculate Rolls Royce stopped next to us at a red light. "And I want that car!" He continued, peering into its plush insides. Then quietly he said, "I guess nobody is THAT funny."
