My problem is somewhat different. 1 can write I write millions of Ihern. Bui I can't talk lo people, faee lo face. This is whal happens to writers sometimes. Many good newspapermen can't think unless they have a typewriter before them. They'll type a note to a guy silling across the room, rather than walk over and talk man to man. My beautiful wife says I never talk to her. At the dinner table I'm thinking about Pol-Luck or the funeral column. "Who Christine asks. Ilildegard wrote me a note at lunch the other day.
