Comment on Grizzard by Andy Newman http://www.columnists.com/2011/12/why-papers-are-dying-lewis-grizzard-died-first/grizzard-2/comment-page-1/#comment-73909 Tue, 21 Mar 2017 18:37:38 +0000 http://www.columnists.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Grizzard1.jpg#comment-73909 I miss Lewis to this day. Every time I see a Waffle House (his favorite restaurant) I think of him. He was married four times, as I recall, the last time just before his untimely death. He had many great quotes, but none better than one on the Larry King show. Larry was married many times, Lewis was on his TV show after his second divorce. Larry asked “Lewis do plan to get married again” to which Lewis responded “no, I think I’ll just find a woman I hate and buy her a house”. He WAS the greatest. His best headline was as a college student at UGA. The subject was a injured linebacker at Georgia named Happy Dicks. Try to find, it is a classic!

Comment on Executive Director by cathy gillentine http://www.columnists.com/about/board/officer-administration/comment-page-1/#comment-73886 Wed, 01 Mar 2017 14:50:27 +0000 http://www.columnists.com/?page_id=15095#comment-73886 Best wishes for a successful directorship. I am happy to hear the theme of the conference. I got out of this group several years ago after it seemed like they had opened the membership to all the wannabees in the world. Which happened, I think, because we spent too much money on the Washington convention. Anyway, I hope you manage to make some professionals out of all those folks who decided to call themselves columnists regardless of their talents. Incidentally, I am now 86 and still writing a weekly column, for pay.
