Preston Sturges Would Be So Happy

Remember Trudy Kockenlocker and Ignatz Ratskiwatski in "The Miracle of Morgan's Creek"? Or John D. Hackensacker III (aka "Snoodles") in "The Palm Beach Story?" Well, art is a fine thing, but once again it pales when compared to real life.

Consider Denver, my new home. I am waiting breathlessly for a newspaper headline announcing a meeting between the mayor of Our Fair City and the new offensive coordinator for the Broncos. Perhaps they'd engage in an informal sports contest, say, of the kind favored on college campuses throughout the Golden West.

I can see it now: "Hickenlooper and Heimerdinger in Hacky Sack Fracas."
