I'm sure you’ve already noted the conspicuous absence of the iPod from the list of perfect things on page 6 of Love Walked In, and no, it wasn’t an oversight: in my opinion, iPods don’t stack up next to the Chrysler Building or Leonardo’s sketches of hands, but still, they’re elegant, and from certain angles, the white-and-silver ones look a little like Veronica Lake’s cigarette case.

What would George and Ira have said if they knew folks would one day be toting their compositions around in little plastic boxes hooked to their running shorts?

How would Ella have felt about her voice streaming over the Internet?

Does Bob Dorough have his own website? (Yes! He does!)
