Tennessee Williams on Papa

"Hemingway usually kicks people like me in the crotch."

His fears were misplaced. When they were introduced in 1959 at the Floridita by Kenneth Tynan, they got on like blood brothers.

Hit Me With Your Best Shot: Unauthorized Edit


Pat Benatar is an incomparable rock vocalist and Hit Me With Your Best Shot one of my all-time favorite songs. But every time she sings:

"You've a long history / of breaking little hearts / like the one in me," I wince.

The line should obviously be:

"You've a long history / of breaking lovers' hearts / like the one in me." Why didn't she have me look the lyric over before she released the tune, one of the greatest ever recorded?

Oh well  . . . .

Next time, Pat. For you I'm available 24/7. Call me, any old time you can call me.
