Urban Cowgirl…

From Diane Horner, the doyenne of Country and Western line dance instruction, “Cowboy Hip Hop Dancing.”

As we remind ourselves that “mullet” also refers to a fish, we might wish a dramatic Happy Birthday to Thornton Wilder, the only writer to win Pulitzer Prizes for both Drama (twice– Our Town and The Skin of Our Teeth) and Literature (The Bridge of San Luis Rey); he was born on this date in 1897 in Madison, Wisconsin.  In all, Wilder authored seven novels, three full-length plays, and a variety of shorter works including essays, one-act plays, and scholarly articles.  His third full play, The Matchmaker, while it did not win the Pulitzer, was adapted to become the stage and screen hit Hello, Dolly.
