Maria Callas & Mick Jagger


In honor of Patti Smith (today is notable for her in that it was Robert Mapplethorpe's birthday, and also the day her husband, Fred Sonic Smith, died), The Stranger posted this video of her appearance on an early-'80s show I had completely forgotten about, Kids Are People Too.

1. I remain in total awe of Patti Smith.

2. Not to bring the room down or anything, but damn, mainstream society has become so conservative
with a few notable exceptions, it seems almost inconceivable that a kids' show today would have Patti Smith as a guest.

What a great clip. Those kids are so excited! She remains one of my all-time favorites.
