Say, that Dick Berry is pretty funny. He should think about writing a column or somethin'.

Ha Ha! I've been a DB fan for many decades. In my not so humble opinion, he is
America's greatest and most prolific humorist. Used to correspond with him. He told me I
had a "cool name". (I believe at the time I was using "Robert Redford".)

Dave is 7 years younger than I, but looks much younger. Some experts believe it improves
your looks if you are actually are younger; also more successful and a multi millionaire. But
what do they know? Anyhoo, thanks for the great post.

Reminds me of the list I've recently started of actual news headlines that don't sound quite right - funny on purpose or by accident.


Deli worker speaks out after violent avocado assault

Man who robs bank to get away from wife is sentenced to home confinement

Giant drug-slinging catapult used to shoot pot into the United States

A Man is at Fred Martin Motorcars claiming to be Jesus Christ and wants to purchase a red Dodge Challenger

Hi DB fans

Here's the URL for a column from the 1990s about the tobacco industry settlement.

Dave is versatile. He writes columns, humorous books, fiction and children's books.
His friend and former coworker at the Miami Herald Carl Hiaasen also writes columns,
comic novels set in Florida and children's books. You can tell Carl has Scandinavian
ancestry by the double "a" in his name.

Hi Jkennedy, whey you were a kid and down in the dumps did you Mom say, "Now
don't be a blue jay?"

I have thought Dave's turning 40 and 50 books were his best for a long time. They
are part autobiography and part history of our country and part humor. I read some
years ago that he would not be writing about turning 60 since that was not a funny subject.

I suspect if Dave wrote a grocery list it would be funny.
