With my own eyes I saw James Stewart sob into the microphone: “Hold out, Coop, I’m coming.” At that moment I knew that Gary Cooper was dying.
The only achievement I am really, really proud of is the friends I have made in this community; and I use the word community in it’s larger sense. Just looking around this room makes me feel that my life has not been wasted. And if anybody asks me, am I the luckiest guy in the world? My answer is, yup.
