It was in the late-80s -- maybe '88. Anyway, you, me and CH were drinking and bullshitting. I remember CH reading Doug Ireland's initial Press Clips column aloud. I said that Ireland's sentences were too long. CH replied, "It worked for Henry James." Then we talked about the use of "Johnson" to describe dicks.

That was the beginning. I spent countless nights and weekends at his and Carol's apartment. Another lifetime.

I don't remember that, actually. I remember running into you on the street shortly after I'd seen CH.

Yeah, I know his politics got really rancid, but I always liked the guy. Warm, friendly, gracious.
