In the movie world you would not expect a smallish screening for a movie like Rock the Kasbah to have a night like this, but Bill Murray has great karma. Rock legends turned out on Friday night: Sir Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, to start. And there was Bill Clinton, whose silver head shone like a beacon at the room's center.
It was the Friday of Memorial Day Weekend and I was driving to the beach. As I neared the bridge, my eyes unconsciously ticked down to the time. As I closed in on my destination, I always checked the clock because the bridge opened every half hour for boats to pass and no one ever wanted to "catch" the bridge.
