Congrats, DL! Most well-deserved!

really great! in heaven they're playing your song.

You're the ice-blue, coolest of cool,
you're one of the roughs,
& nobody's fool,
you can carry Frank's hat
(if he ever comes back),
you're the coolest of the ice-blue cats ...
you're the generalissimo
of the bravo bravissimo,
you're the coolest jewel!
in all the bars
among the stars
they're plinkin' their ditties to you ...

Congratulations!!!!! Luck IS a Lady, and She sure knows how to pick the right guy.

sing it, dance it, play it!! (and you wrote it also) fabulous - congrats!

Congratulations, David! The ASCAP-Deems Taylor is a wonderful award, invaluable in so many ways.

A well deserved award for a wonderful book. Congrats, old pal! (I love the ditty posted above in your honor!)
