        I recognized that synapse malfunction in an instant.

        It's Jim Cooper.

          is that my comment originally read "Cooper, TN."  I CHANGED it to make it wrong!

            I'm guessing that you had Patrick is Lucky in mind when you were typing Cooper's first name.

              In the 1970s, I did 247 performances of The Wizard of Oz, playing Glinda in the states, Rome, Milan, and Tel Aviv.

              I don't think of it much, except every time I see your screen name.

                And based on the date you just revealed, my hunch that we were both ... to put it flatteringly and euphemistically ... "more experienced" than some of the dKos posters was correct.

                I actually don't mind my "synaptic errors" anymore because I have been able to figure out stuff about how my mind stores things: both short and long term.

                My dKos handle was from a nickname that I was given in the 70s at my first job.  I told the story here several times over the years. But I've always loved Billie Burke's Glinda.
