A quick aside. I am reminded of Ronald Reagan's "You ain't seen nothin' yet!" Was that his own phrase, an allusion to Jolson, a line from one of his films, or maybe a quotation form somewhere else? Anyone know?

Take your stinkin' paws off me, you damn dirty ape. Wasn't Fay Wray, was it? :D
Thought not. No idea then
I think 'you ain't heard nothing yet' was a reference the earlier 'you ain't seen...'
but I don't know who that was. Barnum, marbe?

is from The Hours. Very classy novel, now used to help teach creative writing, and a clever film.
