The handsome guy who looks very 1970s in the picture is Paul Dickson, who turned 75 yesterday. When the picture was taken, Paul was on NBC-TV’s Johnny Carson Show to talk about his then latest book, The Official Rules.
Since that 1978 television appearance with Carson, Paul has out-authored any other writer in Washington, and maybe in the world. His first book, Think Tanks, was published in 1971. The Official Rules, in 1978, was his eighth. Authorisms, his 66th, was published this year.
