LR vs NYC
LR vs. NYC, part deux
A few months ago NY Post gossip columnist Cindy Adams was invited to Little Rock to tour the Clinton presidential library. She had a bad trip and then criticized the city unmercifully.
The episode emerges again in her July 7 column (reg. req'd):
ANGRY letter from a Sandi Wilkins after what I considered my funny column about visiting her Little Rock, Ark., hometown:
"You don't appreciate us, and we do not appreciate you. In New York recently, after the worst play ever, we were at our Marriott Hotel by 10:30 and told we couldn't have anything to eat, only drinks. I understand why in N.Y. it's so vital to have a drink!!! No grass, no trees, no sleep because of the constant sounds. People swarmed by peddlers with fake Rolexes. Everyone discourteous, no wonderful lawns or huge homes to relax in. Our waiter said he made $100,000 a year and lived in one bedroom that cost $3,400 a month. You should see what Arkansans have for a whole lot less. I think we will all be happy if we stay out of New York and you stay out of Little Rock."
Sandi, hon, it's a deal.
KIDDIES, mother is taking a week off to put her face up in curlers. So don't give up on me and switch to reading the Little Rock Blade or anything because I love you a lot. See you the 14th.
