Cure for the Uncommon Cold

The miracle, or the power, that elevates the few
is to be found in their industry, application,
and perseverance under the prompting of
a brave, determined spirit.
— Mark Twain

Johnny at rehearsal in Sun Valley, 
fighting a terrible cold, high altitude, and smoke-infused air 
from recent forest fires. He wowed the crowd that night 
with brilliant performances, and wowed them again 
at the lengthy post-show meet-n-greet 
with his graciousness and humor.

So I recorded the “Best of U.S.” thing and watched it after we were spellbound by the season finale of Shameless, which we had also recorded because during the time slot Sunday night when Shameless was actually finale-ing, we were retrieving my second car from an entirely different location in Chicago than the one in which I live, which is an entirely different story that really has no point at all but a certain amount of irresistible charm, like a Wes Anderson film gone oddly wrong, which is really saying something given that Wes Andersons films make their home in the space where things are not quite right, which essentially sums up my entire life, but anyway, my point, and I do have one, is:

Kayso Johnny’s off in LA doing mysterious things that apparently are required to be conducted in some kind of Cone of Silence, because after the deluge of Johnny media that went on for a solid month, from the start of the Olympics in early February through the Oscars at the beginning of March to his rave-review appearance on Seth Meyers last Friday, the sudden quiet is really....
