I have just received a telegram from ?Blinky? Friedman, now living in exile somewhere on the west coast, which should be of interest to all Altonites. Although Blinky acknowledges that he ?is familiar with? Kinky Friedman, he will neither confirm nor deny any relationship. Further, he states that he is willing to meet Kinky ?any place, any time? in order to ?straighten things out.? He says that they have "strong ideological differences.?
Blinky specifically mentioned that he would be in New England in mid-June and would be willing to match wits and ?anything else we can think of? with Kinky. ?Bring it on!? he says. It sounds as if the gauntlet has been thrown. I suggest that the Annual Dinner Committee invite both Kinky and Blinky to the June gala. (We can pass this off to Kinky as a fundraiser for his Texas gubernatorial campaign).
