Endnotes and Digressions:
1. Grey-tones for this installment are by Chad Essley.
2. Of course, a bloody comic strip fails utterly to convey the weird, spine-tingling joy, scope and range of "Heart and Soul" -- the playlist was this mad mix of theater standards, Cole Porter, Rufus Wainwright (!), songs fetishizing New York and a suite written by kids participating in The Haven Project (www.HavenProject.org).
3. Reservations at Wilf's are highly recommended; for details on the restraurant and its live-music calendar, call 503-223-0070 or visit www.wilfs.citysearch.com.
4. You can learn more about Mars (and buy her CD, natch) at www.SusannahMars.com.
