I loved the interview with Frank Stella (great New England accent). The slideshow doesn't move beyond the first model for the chapel, however. I tried it twice...no forward pointing arrow shows.

The pairing of politicians and pop stars is an excellent commentary on society. You should look at Miguel Covarrubias' caricatures in Vanity Fair in the 1920's and 1930's, titled "Impossible Interviews," that did just that. Examples are Senator Smith W. Brookhart vs. Marlene Dietrich and Clark Gable vs. Edward, Prince of Wales"

Reporting the news that has yet to happen is fun. I personally like to observe the coincidence of famous people who die. I always remember that the Shah of Iran and Peter Sellers died the same day. Did they meet at the pearly gates?
