Mona and Jay had not talked to each other in a while — she had been moving, he had been traveling — so they have some catching up to do. They talk about “dreamers” and immigration. They talk about Trump and “Chuck ‘n’ Nancy.” They talk about the Koreas. They talk about Joe Biden (!). About New Jersey (Mona’s native state). About the Confederacy and the ongoing war over monuments. About many things.
They even talk about Taylor Swift, if briefly (swiftly). The music they go out on is not Taylor but Bach – as jazzed up by the Swingle Singers, back in a swinging era.More
