Not Bad, But It’s Not As Breathtaking As “The Kramer”
Overheard during the unveiling of the Tommy Lasorda painting at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery on Tuesday…
Jamie McCourt: I sense great vulnerability. A land child crying out for love, an innocent orphan in the post-modern world.
Frank McCourt: I see a parasite.
Jamie McCourt: A sexually-depraved miscreant, who is seeking to gratify only his most basic and immediate urges….
Jamie McCourt: He is struggled, he is man-struggled. He lifts my spirit!
Frank McCourt: He is a loathsome, offensive brute, yet I can’t look away.
Jamie McCourt: He transcends time and space.
Frank McCourt: He sickens me.
Jamie McCourt: I love it.
Frank McCourt: Me too.
