Thank you. Before watching your monologue this morning I was numb. Perhaps it was after the Walter Scott video was shown over and over again or the pending repeat of the Parsley Massacre in the Dominican Republic.
Studio 54 boasts a legacy of irreverence. The opera house turned television studio turned disco club became one of the sexiest venues in New York City during the '70s, kenneling the coolest cats in the country.
