SUV song's Unitarian Universalist connections.
When I read about "90-Pound Suburban Housewife Drivin' in Her SUV," a country song first broadcast to a wide audience on NPR's "Car Talk" in January, of course I had to hear a clip. And then, at the song's official website, I began reading the bios of the songwriters. As Mrs Philocrites read over my shoulder, I said, "There's got to be a UU connection." Sure enough: Rozanne Gates, a former big-time actor's agent, and her life partner Suzanne Sheridan, a singer-songwriter who wrote for the newly rediscovered "Electric Company," are active members of the Westport, Conn., church. Sheridan is part of The Key Ingredients, "a spiritually-based, Unitarian-gospel, three-part harmony, guitar-driven, musical powerhouse." I want to meet these people.

Update 5.3.06: CNN featured the songwriters in an amusing segment yesterday; see it here.
