Get Down With Your Bad Self

From Holden:

How did I miss this story from the April 16, 2005, Boston Globe about Condi Rice’s speech at a luncheon for the American Society of Newspaper Editors?

But perhaps the most surprising news came from the editor who introduced Rice, saying the secretary of state once held the title of ”Disco Queen of South Bend, Indiana.”

”You’ve got quite a research department,” Rice responded in the opening sentences of her address. ”I want to assure everybody, it’s actually not that hard to be the disco queen of South Bend, Indiana,” Rice said. ”There’s not that much competition in South Bend, Indiana.”
