The Jerry Reference That Got Away

I missed a reference to Jerry Lewis in the New York Times yesterday. You can't blame me! There are so many of them. This one was by Alessandra Stanley. No doubt she has heard about the contest I set up between Manohla Dargis and A.O. Scott, and wants to get in on it. I always thought it would be Jon Pareles who leapt into the fray! I will not "link" to Ms. Stanley's reference, as it equates Charlie Sheen with Dean Martin. Nothing personal against Mr. Sheen! But the mind reels. (Update: I think the article in question will be in TOMORROW'S Times. But the "web" version was published yesterday. I think. I'm all mixed up inside!)
