The Breakfast Table

Let the Whole World Know

Dear Margaret,

I’ve been working on my column, giving a lunch-time speech, and getting ready for the show tonight. That said, I’m gratified to know you can put toothpaste back in the tube. This might be a long-shot prospect for Letterman’s stupid human tricks, an excellent follow-up to the guy the other night who could pop pennies off his belly into a shot glass. He went three for three. Could you do as well with your Colgate? I love you, Margaret. Let the whole world know it. (Kathy already does.) Best, cheers and, thank the Lord just one more day of this.

Remember Pride and Prejudice? Mornings for correspondence, afternoons for cards. I guess Hardball is my card game.
