    Dino DeConcini sent me the following to post here for him. He is having problems posting. If any of the rest of you are having problems, just send me what you want to post and I will post it in your name. rdf@richardfox.com

    Ellen was one of the smartest, prettiest and funniest persons I've ever known. Her humor came through in many different ways, including as a member of the Writers' Committee for the ACLU annual follies, which is where I think I first met her.

    One year she composed a song called "Yes, they can't get Bonano" to the tune of "Yes, we have no bananas," razzing the FBI's ineptness in that endeavor. Someone knew I played the mandolin and asked if I would accompany her which I did, lending a little more Italian flavor. It brought down the house.

    She also did a hilarious version on how nobody knew how to pronounce Qadaffi's first name to the melody of Bizet's "L'amour est un oiseau rebelle" in Carmen. In the refrain where Carmen hauntingly sings "Amour..amour..amour...amour" Ellen sang something like "Momar... Mumar...Maumor. . . Marmour." If any ACLUers remember or have copies of either of these, please post.

    She knew I had taken up meditation when I also decided to take off two months to study Chinese in China, (unsuccessfully as it turned out.), and to the tune of "Gonna to take a sentimental journey," she came up with something like this, as well as I can recall from almost 30 years ago.

    Gonna to take a sentimental journey; gonna study some Chinese
    Gonna to take a sentimental journey; try to put my soul at ease.
    Got my shawl and got my incantation; la, la la, lala la la
    Had my fill of transubstantiation, la, lala, lala a la la

    Safron...I'll be wearing robes of safron; separating wheat from chafron.

    There was a third verse.

    I so wish I could remember more.
