SEEING STARS ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!
The stars were out at 7th and Montana yesterday, but I was so engrossed in the Sunday crossword I hardly noticed. The fun began when a friendly woman took an interest in the fact that Gen, Kathy and I were working separately on the same crossword. "Do you always do the crossword together?," she asked. "Yes," I grunted, engrossed in Pinocchio's relationship to Geppetto (82-Down). Gen patiently chatted with the woman, explaining that the crossword has become something of a Sunday ritual. After the woman left, Kathy said, "You know who that was, don't you? Catherine Keener!" All I can say is Kathy must have a Keener eye than I do. Moments later, I finished the crossword, looked up and noticed that Ben Affleck had made the scene. Kathy wished him luck with Argo. I wished I had another crossword ...!
