Sadly with Adlai

Sadly with Adlai

Adlai Stevenson would have been 114 this month. I once took a girl I admired on a “date” to see him speak at Colgate University, circa February 1963. The effort did not sweep her off her feet, and I began to realize what it meant to go sadly for Adlai. He did send me a signed photograph, although the signature — appropriately enough — is fading.
