 Someday I’ll take one of those great vacations, when I do nothing but read all the books that are piled up by my bedside. I’ll never get through them all. I know I won’t. But that would be a nice, nice thought, if I could just have a month to just browse and read. I never get to it, but I try.

 There was an erroneous announcement that I’d had restorative vocal surgery and I have not. I could never pretend that I sing as I used to. I have a few good bass notes, so I can do a great ‘Ol Man River,’ and I can sing-speak a little bit. I am going on a small international tour later this year, doing a beautiful concert of music that I debuted last year in America.
