# Quote
1 [about writer Edward Adler, a longtime friend] He was the most lovable guy I guess I ever met in my life. I don’t know anyone who knew Eddie that didn’t want to protect him, because he always seemed like an innocent. Eddie was a great example of someone who always lived close to the ground, so to speak. He wandered through life with his eye and his ear on a kind of New York that doesn’t exist anymore.
2 [about President George W. Bush] We need a president who’s fluent in at least one language.
