Kennedy Center honors we can believe in

Among the worthies honored by the Kennedy Center and the White House last night were one Mr. Melvin Kaminsky, i.e., Mel Brooks, and one Mr. Robert De Niro. The introduction for Mr. De Niro is not online, but President Obama’s description of Mr. Brooks is, and it’s a doozy.

Since I don’t have anything on from the presentation featuring the president and Mr. De Niro, I’ll have to go with his on-air meeting with another important personage.

Just for the record, the non-movie honorees were jazz great Dave Brubeck, opera singer Grace Bumbry, and, yeah, Bruce Springsteen. The show will air on CBS on December 29.
