I have returned to sunny southern California. I'm relaxing in my suite at the Beverly Hills Hotel, watching THE BARKLEYS OF BROADWAY on TCM. There's some guy named Levant on screen. Why is he taking up valuable time that should be devoted to Ginger and Fred?

I am heading back to the U.S. today. Musician Richard Rodgers called to tell me his partner left him for Jerome Kern. I referred him to a support group for men dealing with similar issues. It's all composers who attend those meetings. The group was founded by Peter Tchaikovsky and Aaron Copeland.
