My new job with The Dick Cavett Show at ABC-TV paid about 15 percent of the total income I had been accustomed to with Alex, and when publicists I knew telephoned - the same ones who a few months earlier had wooed me with expensive meals and private movie screenings - I had to tell them I was not authorized to make booking decisions, that I was a production assistant and I would take a message for the producers.
I recommend this exercise to anyone who ever might think he or she is hot stuff. It builds character.

This shot reminds me of my time at the Associated Press in New York, about 10 years later. Same chairs, file cabinets and typewriters. You were a brave girl!

I was wondering if anyone would notice that typewriter, Yolima. And we thought they were oh so modern and high-tech then.
