In 1987, two Cal State Northridge students acheived the near-impossible---even in the pre-9/11 U.S. --- of a credential-less crashing of the 60th annual Academy Awards. What they got for their troubles was exactly fifteen minutes of fame---that many mins.---on Carson. Next to them, the much-vaunted publisexuals, the Salahis, are nothin' but a couple of pikers.
Apparently all the deals alluded to by Carson, in the last part of his interview with them, never quite came the two guys' way. One of my more Baroque worries is wondering what happened to them.
