Welcome, RMS readers.
Best known for her role as Elaine from 'Seinfeld' Julia Louis-Dreyfus has found something noble to support. Going green.
But meeting environmentalist Robert Kennedy Jr. at a dinner party in the late 1990s compelled her to do more. “Kennedy is a true leader, a visionary, and an inspirational person. He connected all the dots for me.”
After 11 seasons of Seinfeld and her current successful sitcom, one episode where she contemplates on getting high off of some weed she found, Julia is seems to be on the brink if making people laugh isn't good enough. After being the one who coined the term, 'Sponge-worthy'.
ELAINE: So, you think you're sponge-worthy?
BILLY: Yes, I think I'm sponge-worthy. I think I'm very sponge-worthy.
ELAINE: Run down your case for me again...?
BILLY: Well, we've gone out several times, we obviously have a good rapport. I own a very profitable electronics distributing firm. I eat well. I exercise. Blood tests - immaculate. And if I can speak frankly, I'm actually quite good at it.
ELAINE: You going to do something about your sideburns?
BILLY: Yeah, I told you...I'm going to trim my sideburns.
ELAINE: And the bathroom in your apartment?
BILLY: Cleaned it this morning.
ELAINE: The sink, the tub, everything got cleaned?
BILLY: Everything, yeah. It's spotless.
ELAINE: Alright, let's go.
Yes, saving the planet is more much worthy cause than being known for being 'sponge-worthy' and Thumb Dancing.
More below the fold.
