Formerly of Maine, presently of Brooklyn. I work for Lincoln Center.
Something I learned today:
Thunderstorms, which can be the home of tornadoes, usually happen later in the day, when the sun is approaching the horizon. That creates a reddish tinge in the sky, as any fan of sunsets knows. But light under a 12-mile-high thundercloud is primarily blue, due to scattering by water droplets within the cloud. When blue objects are illuminated with red light, Bachmeier says, they appear green.
Now you know.
Richard Rockefeller was killed in a plane crash yesterday morning. He was my pediatrician all through my childhood and one of the kindest people I’ve ever met.
My mother tells me he first examined me when I was about one hour old. Apparently he told her then, “Cheryl, you are going to have the trials and joys of a child who is extremely alert to this world.”
I haven’t seen Dr. Rockefeller for years. Lincoln Center was founded by his uncle John. I wish I had had the chance to tell him I worked here.
