Northwestern University Alumni Magazine

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

Am thrilled to be featured by my alma mater in its Summer 2010 issue! Considering NU turns out quick a few folks, like Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners, famed actors and writers, and icons of business and science, who seem to be way smarter than me, I still believe the editors attempted to dial someone like, say, NU alums Stephen Colbert or Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and when Gary and I joint-answered the phone -- as we often do -- they mistook my voice for Stephen's and Gary's for Julia's, and were too embarrassed to correct their mistake. So, I'll take it ... truly honored to be featured. Here is link to the article ... Happy June!

Contrats Wade! Your humor is right up there with Stephen and Julie - so of course they wanted you.

You're WONDERFUL, Wade, wish you were MY neighbor up here in the woods of Ulster County. KEEP writing, Thoreau! Hi to Gary.

Hey Wade- don't forget another famous alumnus, Paul Lynde. Who, while I was at NU, wobbled drunk into the Burger King at 1AM and began yelling racial epithets at the people behind the counter. He was to be the homecoming parade marshal the next day.

Look forward to talking with you about your new book this Saturday.
