Name Flopping

Here is the whole of a Jay Nordlinger post at The Corner:
Ted Sorensen

By Jay Nordlinger

The famed speechwriter and politico passed away yesterday. I talked to him once, on the phone. Wanted to confirm something. Mainly, I wanted the chance to talk to him. I had read that, whenever he was asked whether he had written Kennedy’s inaugural address, he answered, “Ask not.” When I quoted that to him, he sort of winced, verbally: “Yes, I said that, but just once: only once.” He was embarrassed about it. (Even though he had admitted nothing, about the speech.) He was of the school of not telling — not telling what you wrote.

I’m glad I made contact with him, even if it was just a phone conversation. A big figure in our political life.
Well done gramps. Wait, not telling what again?

It's the corner, Jake.

Just be glad they're trying out the reading and writing thing.

Maybe it will take hold, someday.
