Hi Pinkwater,
I'm very impressed with your writing fame as well as your radio interviews.
I remember you from our friendship in the 7th grade in L.A. Your sense of humor was already in action then. I myself have had a long professional life in Equity theater and also have given copies of your books to my 10 year old son who who really likes your stuff. Good going for you. Keep it up!
