Good G-d, if I could buy plane tickets for my friends to come visit me, I'd already be doing it. And also buying a lot of plane tickets for me to go visit them.

Edwin is so wonderful.

I bet it was terrific.

He did give a really good performance--and he knows how to perform in front of an audience that doesn't necessarily have any context for the kind of work he does (which, in this case, was really important).
