All this Trump talk about things being rigged makes me have to share this.

 I was robbed of an Academy Award for Sophie’s Choice in the late 80’s.  Yes, indeed. First of all, it was originally called Sonia’s Choice, but when the powers that be, saw my remarkable performance they became frightened that a Nuyorican could be so great.  So they superimposed Meryl Streep’s face over mine.   You see, at that time photo shopping was still a secret clandestine technique and only movie makers had access to it.

It was rigged!!!

Which reminds me of the time I was robbed of a Grammy for my recording of La Traviata.  Maria (Another ‘Maria.”) Callas got it instead.  Why? Because it was rigged! But that’s another story.
