One of your best, Fraser. It's educational just hunting for the clever plays on words. You might consider a book on various press secretaries over the years. Jim Hagerty, Eisenhower's guy, was a former New York Times reporter who brooked little nonsense for anyone trying to embarass Ike. Those who have followed him have been weak sisters in contrast. He gave Art Buchwald, a struggling reporter, hell at a summit meeting in Paris. Art had dared write a spoof re Ike's botched syntax. His scolding made him world famous as a humorist converted into a columnist by Ben Bradlee. who had been at the summit.
