We're under one umbrella. We're on our cell phones because we cannot hear you. All of the equipment has died because of the downpour. I was going to show you the newspapers. But here's what it looks like. Here's the headlines. Here in london. They disintegrated. But the ones that survived are really fantastic. And amy and I are not being rude. This is the only way we can hear you in new york. "It's a boy," says the "star." And "the sun" changed its name to "the son." If only the sun would come out now, it would be better.
