I just remembered that the same Patti Lupone who commended Vanessa Redgrave’s pro-PLO politics (see three globs down) came back from a Spain vacation just a few months before the deadly attacks on Madrid, saying that it’s the Muslim influence in the south of Spain that “gives the area its allure and magic.”

And I just want to tell her, “Um actually, Patti, magic is when you can put the people back together again. That’s usually how that trick goes. Otherwise, I think it’s called terrorism.”
