For On the Side of the Angels-Cole Porter Tribute

Because Paul asked....and Cole Porter is a particular favorite.

Cole Porter was a Yalie ... he's also famous for writing the "Yale Bulldog" and "Bingo, Eli Yale" Yale school "fight" song - still done at football games. Go Bulldog! He had suffered a riding accident in the 1930s, and became crippled by it. Apparently, he never complained about it either - something to admire. He also, unlike many of his fellow songwriters, came from a very wealthy family - didn't need to work a day in his life but did.
