Steve Lookner had submitted an early joke. “Lyle Lovett and Julia Roberts are getting divorced. Insides say the trouble began because he was Lyle Lovett and she was Julia Roberts.”

“Exactly,” said Downey. “That’s what I was getting at when…” But I glowered at him and he cast his eyes down. If he wanted to listen to his Sex Pistols records, he could do it at home.
