He Denied Knowing Her

William Jefferson Clinton has managed to go 25 years without ever apologizing to Monica Lewinsky.

Unwilling to acknowledge her humanity, Clinton referred to her not as “Monica Lewinsky” or “Ms. Lewinsky” but instead as “That Woman”.

Then a servant girl, seeing him as he sat in the light and looking closely at him, said, “This man also was with him.” But he denied it, saying, “Woman, I do not know him.” And a little later someone else saw him and said, “You also are one of them.” But Peter said, “Man, I am not.” And after an interval of about an hour still another insisted, saying, “Certainly this man also was with him, for he too is a Galilean.” But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are talking about.” And immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed. And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the saying of the Lord, how he had said to him, “Before the rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.”

Luke 22:56-61

Wedding Bell Blues

Linda Tripp, a would-be spy, befriended the distraught Lewinsky and recorded many hours of conversations in hopes of taking down the president.

Tripp’s many hours of tape didn’t reveal too much damning evidence. But they did reveal two friends living ordinary life. Under extraordinary circumstances. Their friendship began under contrived circumstances. Later circumstances made that friendship impossible. But for a moment they were two friends who worried about weight, getting to the gym, and splitting cheeseburgers because that makes it ok.

On Saturday, 1 May 2004 Melissa Lawson and Kara Revel performed selections from the transcripts of those tapes.
