"Fortified with a good rest, a steam bath and a sirloin steak, and armed with throat lozenges and malted milk tablets, [he] talked against a civil rights bill for 24 hours and 18 minutes - longer than anyone has ever talked about anything in Congress ... 'At times he spoke so quietly that he appeared to be mumbling to himself.'

"He left the chamber at 9:12 p.m. [His assistant] waited in the cloakroom with a pail in case [he] was in dire need of a toilet."


A perverse 1957 remake of MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON?

No ... just Strom.

But at least we got rid of Strom.

For some reason, I keep picturing Kate at the Pearly Gates saying, "Thurmond, you hateful old coot, stop holding up the line! You're not getting in."

For the first time ever I burst into tears at a celebrity passing, right in front of a newstand this morning.

I loved Katharine Hepburn more than anything.

She gave feminity spunk & a sort of charming churlishness. I adore her. Aaaaaah!



A lady who has a secure seat is never prettier than when in the saddle, and she who cannot make her conquest there, may despair of the power of her charms elsewhere. - THE MANNERS THAT WIN, 1880
