Re: Paul’s Nice Story on Tony Snow

Paul, thanks for sharing that with us about Tony Snow. Stories like that about Tony are legion. Mine is similar. I was working on Capitol Hill for Bob Livingston, but I missed journalism. Tony was a neighbor of one of Bob's longtime legislative aides, so through him I asked Tony (whom I had never met) if I could buy him a cup of coffee and get some advice. Forget coffee, he said; come on by for lunch. And he didn't just do lunch; he stayed for two solid hours listening and giving advice. This was when he was a columnist for USA Today and also nationally syndicated, I think by Creators.

Anyway, I followed his advice exactly. And it was good advice.

God Bless him. May he recover quickly.
