McGinniss
by: Bernard McCormick

David: Do you recall how upset Joe McGinniss was (at first) with my 1983 piece for the Inky? He sent a wild letter which disturbed you - until I showed Carolyn White that the personal stuff he objected to came right out of his own work. Not long after he met my aunt at a book signing and was cheerful and said to say "hi" to me.

It was actually a very positive piece on his great success with "Fatal Vision." The book was a number one best seller in Phila. and I think that caused him to revise his opinion of the piece. I still get occasional requests for it - most recently from Michael Pakenham, who was quoted in the story and was once a close friend.

John Stanton
by: Deacon Alvin Clay

I thought you might want to know that John Stanton died today at the age of 85. He was vigorous and active to the end -- drove himself to the hospital on Tuesday.

I know you were on opposite sides of the abortion debate, but I also know you respected him.

God bless John Stanton.

I'll Try To Help
by: David Boldt

Send me the article and I´ll see what I can do. I am not familiar with the subject, and the concept of writing freelance pieces for the Metro section is new to me. So tell me exactly what they told you to do in regard to tone (is this an opinion piece?), length, and, well, anything else. And, out of curiosity, where are you? Here in Bolivia? I hope you are not on a tight deadline. I am teaching history here and my teaching duties take up most of my time and attention. Alas, I did not see your message until now. I just had a couple of free days, something that won't happen again until Labor Day (May 1).

Regards,

David Boldt

Philly Inq.
by: Kathy

Dear David,
I'm hopeful that you could re-write a story by me about guardianship for submission to the Inq. and hopeful changes about it through a Pa. Supreme Court task force, a bill by Montgomery County's St. Sen. Stewart Greenleaf in the Sen. Judiciary Committee, and a report for the Comm.'s Dept. of Aging. The city desk editor there is interested. Guardianship is a topic that's affected me personally and professionally. If you can't, I wish you and your family nothing but the best in life and immensely thank you for all of your help, guidance, and kindness in the past.
Sincerely, Kathy
