On a fine sunny day in Washington, D.C. -- a city that loved him -- Art Buchwald was memorialized today. Fittingly, the biggest laughs were in response to Art's lines, delivered either by Art himself on video, or by his friends, including Tom Brokaw, Ethel Kennedy, Ben Bradlee and others. The AP story is here. It was a really fine event. He would have loved it.
I made it home, but I have to be the Responsible Parent tonight, as Mrs. Blog's out being a sportswriter. Also I'm feeling a tad sentimental, so I may join you all late, and passively, for 24. But you guys have fun, OK? Or I will shoot you in the thigh.UPDATE: Here's the Washington Post story.
