In my Coming Attractions post update, I stated that James Abbott had met Stephane Boudin, and a kind Anon. rightly corrected me, since Boudin died in 1967, and Mr. Abbott was surely a toddler at that time. I just got an e-mail from Mr. Abbott saying "...I knew - and counted as a great friend - his daughter, as well as his nephew..." There was so much great information flying around at the lecture, that I didn't get it all down. Mea culpa.
I will be posting some stories Mr. Abbott told from his books over the weekend. Tonight, we're off to see Sex and The City!
