How to Get Away with Murder." Secret talent? "I was once a gymnast and was able to do backflips." What supersঞঞon do you believe in? "I still believe the bride and groom shouldn't see other before the wedding." Favorite movie scene? "At the end of Love & Basketball, when she says, 'I'll play you for your heart.'" What three people would be on the guest list to your ideal dinner party? "Oprah, Shonda Rhimes and Michelle Obama." What's something nobody knows about you? "I used to do the heptathlon in college for our track team." What triggers your "aha!" moment? "An open-records request." A BIT OF HISTORY WE LOVE Back in October 1984, the Kentucky Center hosted the first of two presidenঞal debates between incumbent Ronald Reagan and former VP Walter Mondale. Moderated by Barbara Walters and featuring homegrown Diane Sawyer as one of three panelists, it will go down in history as the night Reagan's grandfatherly admonition — "There you go again," which had worked against Jimmy Carter four years before — backfired when Mondale lit into him in response: "You remember the last time you said that? You said it when President Carter said you were going to cut Medicare. . . . And what did you do right after the election? You went out and tried to cut $20 billion out of Medicare." Reagan was left to dodder; he had no ready retort. Of course he still won the November election by a landslide, but for 10 minutes on a Louisville stage, the invincible "Gipper" looked hopelessly lost. Favorite album? "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill." What would you do if you won the loery? "Not tell anyone." "Hip" may not be the first word that comes to mind when thinking about the library. But the Louisville Free Public Library nailed it when it recently launched Louisville Mix, a new online collection of local music of all genres. With a library card, Louisville Mix is free and available for streaming at lfpl.org/music. A sampling of artists: Jonathan Glen Wood, 23 String Band, Twin Limb, 1200. The popular Louisville Is for Lovers Valentine's releases will also eventually be available. So head to the library and rock out. — Anne Marshall
