I'D WRITTEN ABOUT HER HERE.
JUST FOUND THIS TEENY CLIP FROM HER TALK SHOW.
I WROTE HER SON IN NOVEMBER...AND HE WROTE ME BACK!
I ASKED ABOUT THE HBO FILM THAT WAS SUPPOSEDLY IN PRODUCTION
BASED ON HIS GREAT MEMOIR RECALLING HIS YOUTH WITH MOM.
SADLY, THE PROJECT DIED.
AS FOR HER CHAT SHOW, HE WROTE,
"There are copies of some of my mother's tv shows, but not enough to distribute, so they sit next to my book, keeping each other company until the right time comes around."
I WANTED TO WRITE HIM BACK, STRESSING THAT THE PEOPLE
WHO WOULD PAY TO SEE THESE SHOWS (I'D MADE A POINT TO TELL HIM I'D PAY RETAIL) WON'T BE ALIVE ALL THAT MUCH LONGER, BUT I DIDN'T WANT TO WEIRD HIM OUT & THINK AN INTERNET LUNATIC HAD FOUND HIM.
ANYWAY, THIS IS A NICE TASTE.
