The answer to those two questions, is they are both sat on Los Angeles City Council, and their names are, Mayor Eric Garcetti and CouncilWoman Monica Rodriguez.
During yesterday's LA City Council meeting, Mrs Rodriguez proposed to make Friday November 10th, "Morrissey Day" in Los Angeles. The proposal was passed, and so tomorrow, it is officially Morrissey Day, and Mozzer will be presented with a commemorative certificate at the Hollywood Bowl.
"Morrissey Day honours the man who put the 'M' in Moz Angeles, an icon whose music continues to touch and uplift countless people across the globe. Morrissey uses his voice to raise awareness for many social issues while 'in his own strange way', always staying true to his fans."
Mayor Garcetti added:
"Los Angeles embraces individuality, compassion and creativity, and Morrissey expresses those values in a way that moves Angelenos of all ages. Morrissey Day celebrates an artist whose music has captivated and inspired generations of people who may not always fit in - because they were born to stand out."
The Official Morrissey Twitter account last night posted a tweet of Garcetti's words, and I have no doubt that Morrissey will be deeply touched by this honour. Congratulations to Mozzer from all at FTM HQ, and congratulations also to Rodriguez and Garcetti for having to wisdom to see that Morrissey has indeed captivated and inspired generations of people. Now we just have to hope Morrissey dresses-up for the occasion, and doesn't wear those grey jogging bottoms that he wore at the Nobel Peace Prize.
Tomorrow's sold out concert at the 18,000 seater Hollywood Bowl is set to be a cracker. Will we get Trouble Loves Me? Will Glamorous Glue remain on the set? Will Rose Garden be sung for Jo? Will Monica Rodriguez take Moz a blue rose? - I have asked her via twitter, and she has retweeted it. Will anyone else take Moz a blue rose? Will anyone change the name on 101 Freeway to 'Morrissey Hollywood Bowl', just like they did in August?.... I wonder if that was the work of Garcetti and Rodriguez?
And finally, footage has at last appeared on Youtube of the concert in San Francisco. It includes the first playing in 25 years of Glamorous Glue, and it has been worth the wait. The finger plaster remained.
*Goes off singing* I used to dream and I used to vow, I wouldn't dream of it now. We look to Los Angeles, for the language we use
