What do high mountains, Southern California surfers, Paul Wittgenstein, Cyrano de Bergerac, and Travis Bickle all have in common?
Each of the above is a clue to the 2007 recipients of the Kennedy Center Honors - possibly the nation's most prestigious award in the performing arts. The clues match to the following recipients - in order - Diana Ross, Brian Wilson, Leon Fleisher, Steve Martin, and Martin Scorsese.
The awards will be presented on December 2, and broadcast on CBS on December 26, 2007. If you're hip to the nepotistic nature of this post, you'll understand my eager anticipation for this year's award ceremony.
