    I can’t tell you how very much I enjoyed your Dick Cavett interview! He is truly one of the most interesting and fascinating men ever, and not just in television. I can hear him now in response to my comment — “. . . ONE of the most . . .”?

    Susan, is he single? He’s still such a cutie!

    Take care,

    Absolutely loved this episode. Didn’t know much about Dick Cavett before (I was a tot then) but am very intrigued now. He rocks. Can he come over to my house in Berkeley for a scotch and a chat?
