"was buddies with jfk!" "knows the identity of deep throat!" "mocks art buchwald in print--and gets away with it!"
there's no doubt this is one helluva talented guy, but he was born with silver spoon firmly insterted in oral cavity, even if it wasn't polished to a shine. near the end of the book, he talks about buying a 2.5 million dollar mansion in georgetown with an "aw, shucks" attittude (only able to do it because of post stock rising rapidly) that's downright annoying for miserable journalistic peons like me to have to read.
but for the most part, i liked it a lot. i'm too young to remember most of the events, and this was a great alternative history that i really appreciated. the other great thing about this memoir is the mention of other people's books in it that sound like good reads, so i'm using it as a bibliography, too.
finally, sally quinn (wife #3) is a babe. superheros (even media ones) always get the girl. rock on, benji.
important events of the late 20th century: from World War II to
Watergate, from the domestic revolutions of the '60s to the
international revolutions of the '90s. While serving as the
Washington Post's Executive Editor from 1968 to 1991, the
newspaper became a world-renowned and respected model of
fearless and innovative journalism. A witty and candid story of a
good life -- and a great read.This text refers to the hardcover
edition of this title. -
