Oopsy Daisy

I realized yesterday that I misquoted someone, and because I hate doing that (or having it done to me), I want to set the record straight. The "She doesn't write, she types" comment I attributed in a recent column to Truman Capote was actually said by Gore Vidal. The subject remains author Jacqueline Susann. Truman Capote's summation of Ms. Susann - on national TV - was that she looked like "a truck driver in drag" and then he apologized . . . to truck drivers.

I should have known that two zingers was a lot, even for someone with Truman's sparkling wit.

I stand corrected.
