In the 1995 film Clueless, Kenny G is the archetype of the least cool thing a high school student could imagine.
Josh Lucas: In some parts of the universe, maybe not in Contempo Casuals, but in some parts, it’s considered cool to know what’s going on in the world.
Cher Horowitz: Thank you, Josh. I so need lessons from you on how to be cool. Tell me that part about Kenny G again?
Kenny G took Delta from Tampa to Los Angeles on yesterday morning’s flight 1558.
The famous saxophonist was sitting beside a woman “who was raising money for charity” and he got up in the aisle and played for donations. He “collected more than $2,000 for the [unnamed] charity.”

It’s striking how many passengers appeared non-plussed, such as a woman who just keeps reading her book as he walks by.
Update: Reader Jack P. says funds were raised for Delta Relay for Life in support of the American Cancer Society.
