Clarification: In your profile of me, "Man of the World," the opening quote is simply untrue. I did not claim that "my friends"
tell me I should be in high government office. In fact, the writer posed
that to me as part of a question. And I do not compare my job at Newsweek to
running the State Department. I would have to be nuts to think that. For
some reason, your fact-checker did not check this quote with me or else I
would have set the record straight right away.
