Something about the way he said it made it seem really important. But some early morning googling failed to find anyone with that name (in various spellings) connected to the Stooges. I don't know why that disappoints me so much. I guess I was secretly hoping that I had some superhuman memory that I could access in my dreams. Or that my investigation would lead to some more substantial revelation.
I did, however, learn that a female elder in the Shaker religion (and probably elsewhere) is called an eldress. So I've got that going for me.
