RARA-AVIS: RE: Sinatra and the birds

From: dlochte ( dlochte@adelphia.net)
Date: 17 Apr 2002

Look, Frank's got enough problems. His butler-masseuse is about to unleash a tell-all book. An unauthorized musical staging of his life is about to begin in Las Vegas. St. Peter's probably giving him a rough time about the whole Judith Exner thing, among other indiscretions. Let's not do anything more to disturb the guy's restful peace by misquoting him. The line is: "Just say the words and we'll beat the birds down to Acapulco Bay." "The birds," not "our birds." That leaves very little room for misinterpretation. One may conceivably think he's talking about other airplanes or maybe the rarer members of this group or even the Hitchcock movie, but odds are he's talking about ... birds.
