Tracy Lords...

This isn't about porn... yet. We'll get there. I promise.

As many of you well know, the great Katherine Hepburn passed away recently. Articles about her have been going around like SARS in a chinese laundry (forgive me) and I saw one today that give me the frightful giggles. Look at this. I don't know how long it will last but it's an article about Hepburn's new biography, a book that I'm going to have to get. (Or some nice person can give me...)

Two-thirds of the way down the page is a link to Tracy Lords. Tracy Lords, I thought, must have referred to the wonderful part Ms. Hepburn played in the classic film, Philadelphia Story. One of my favorite movies of the era, it was also the first film of Ms. Hepburn's I remember seeing. I now own it on DVD. It was always one of Rosa's and my favorites.

I didn't think it could refer to Tracy Lords, ex-porn queen.

... Well... it did.

Insult or compliment to the late, great Kate? You decide. Meanwhile, I'll just giggle.
