When I met Little Edie, she was clearly nuts, but there were flashes of charm and style. When I agreed to buy the house, I said that I would take it on the condition that either she leave it broom-clean - which was laughable - or that she leave it all ... and she chose to leave everything.
She was so much fun. She had a great sense of humor,
Every poll shows that most journalists are Democrats.
Even Colin Powell who was everywhere before he became secretary of state, just stopped going out. I think part of it was he didn't want to be viewed suspiciously by the other people in the White House who rarely go anywhere.
But when we started Style, it was so experimental and so over the top. We couldn't do a lot of the stuff that we used to do then now.
I think, certainly in the more civilized societies, women's roles are growing in power all of the time.
I had cottage cheese for lunch and a glass of wine when I got home tonight.
Funny you mention my dinner parties when I have just suggested that inviting close friends over to share a meal with candlelight and wine at your table could be a form of religious experience for some people To me it's a form of sacrament.
It is only in the fundamentalist religions that women are relegated to second class. Radical Evangelicals, Muslims, and Jews all have the same view of women.
We've been together 32 years and married for 27.
I would say I think it's about time. People have a tendency to think that entertaining in Washington politically and diplomatically is frivolous, but it is not. It is part of the work.
People always have thought that the White House was the center of Washington, but it was Kay's house, ... It seems really unthinkable that she's not there anymore, that that big house on the hill will be empty.
The football season is like pain. You forget how terrible it is until it seizes you again.
We're newspaper junkies I can't imagine life without a newspaper.
Then my mother had several strokes and my father, who was 85, couldn't handle it, so Donna came back and we went through the same thing here. She lives in Mill Valley her group is organizing this event.
This morning in the Washington Post there was a statistic about how 85 of Americans are Christians.
Most of the people who live in Washington come from other places and you can learn something from them.
She, I'm sure, is partially responsible for him being re-elected, and I think that she knows that. And I think that has given her an enormous amount of confidence.
I suspect she and the chef did not see eye-to-eye, and that is the kind of thing that happens. So much of this is chemistry and personality. So I am sure they will get another chef and I am sure the food will be fine.
They had not been viewed as demigods in the newsroom. Only after the book, and really after the movie, did it become clear that their celebrity was a little over the top.
Everyone seems to be searching and yearning for answers whatever they may be. And that ends up being some kind of spiritual or religious belief.
I never know what I'm going to do for the Post next. Two weeks ago I had a piece on Homeland Security. This is one of my pig ongoing projects. How unprepared we are for a terrorist attack.
I was brought up by an Episcopalian father and Presbyterian mother in nondenominational Army chapels all over the world and never really had much religious experience.
Last week I did a piece for Style on advice to Laura Bush about how to help her husband. This week it's religion. It just depends on what I find interesting at the moment.
Often what we do is open our house for various charity events. I don't seat according to protocol. I don't invite people because of who they are in the administration or their positions of power. The few who do come, are there because I like them.
