And, thank God we joined you as one, and not apart. Think of how dull this world would be without our creative energy. It would be the light bulb hanging on a wire from the ceiling, without the decorative fixture — or the lamp without the lamp shade.
“It’s pageantry at its finest. The biggest difference [this year is] we will have world-class entertainment.”
