73. I love Dave.
Been reading him since I was in grade school. I wrote a letter to him once, too, and he wrote back. He said something like "Just remember that these years you spend in school will be of absolutely no use to you later in life." Think I still have that around here somewhere.
Anyway, I love his collections. His early stuff is especially great. Man his humor was so striking. I'd love to go over some examples but it'd be too much.
Alrighty....Dave Barry! Right on!
