I’m having a problem accessing some of my e-mail, but I imagine that Gatlin post is getting a lot of reaction and this one from a friend is probably pretty representative:
“Good Lord, Rich! As I think I’ve said to you before, you need to get out of Manhattan more often. Take some cross-country driving trips like Jonah. Even Paul Gigot knows who the Gatlin Brothers are: Larry Gatlin had an op-ed in the WSJ last week.
Down here, your ‘encounter’ would qualify as ‘lifetime’ cool. Baby Stud Duckling! That’s poetry, my friend!”
I know, I know. Just want to be clear about one thing, in case it didn’t come through in that first post–Larry is hilarious and delightful comany. In any case, I feel obligated now to march down to the local Virgin Records Superstore at the first opportunity and pick up a CD.
