    Thanks for sharing your memories of “Crazy Salad.” All of the pieces I have been reading about Nora Ephron just give a blow-by to her essay writing and, instead, carry on about her rom-coms. Now, her movies are wonderful, but it seems to me that to miss any chance to praise her prose writing is a pity. After all, in her essay called “On Rapture” about her love of reading, she told about how, once, when she was in the middle of a particularly wonderful book, she tried to rush a movie production meeting just so she could get back to reading. I am feeling truly like a “Girl of a Certain Age” because I will always think of her as the author of “Crazy Salad” before I think of her as the director of “When Harry…”

    Hey, now. Lots of great people come from Texas. And lots of the people who are still in Texas are very nice. Don’t let the knuckleheads win!!!

    Plus, I have a bit of a thing for cowboy boots. Not that I own any. I just aspire to own some someday.
