Separated at birth? (if you close your eyes, anyway)
The death of Chief Justice Rehnquist had just been announced on the TV in the den. I wasn't watching it, though--just listening from the kitchen, where I was cleaning out the fridge.
People who had known him were telling anecdotes about him, and then I heard a familiar voice. Carol Channing.
What could Carol Channing possibly have to say about Justice Rehnquist? I thought, puzzled. What commentary could she possibly give; whatever are they interviewing her for?
The voice went on and on, up and down and all around, mostly scratchy and gravelly but occasionally squeaky. I couldn't hear many of the words, so I started to walk into the den to get a better notion of what Channing's connection to Rehnquist could possibly have been.
And then it struck me: it was Susan Estrich I was hearing, not Channing at all. But without the visuals, they sound positively identical.
How could there possibly be two of that voice?
Separated at birth? Nah, couldn't be. Or could it?
