Five longtime journalists were sitting around a Washington lunch table yesterday when Wes asked if any of us had gone to the memorial service for a DC-area journalist and teacher. Mike said he knew the man but hadn’t going to the service.
I said, “Remember the old saying from Chicago politics: ‘If you don’t go to other people’s funerals, they won’t come to yours.”
To which Paul said, “Yogi Berra said that.”
Paul was right. Berra, among his other great lines, said, “You should always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise, they won’t come to yours.”
