First, Jim was caricatured by nationally recognized illustrator Ken Fallin at BroadwayWorld.com. The two previous caricatures were of Stephen Sondheim and, before that, Angela Lansbury. So, Jim is very honored.
He and I was standing at the entrance to the restaurant, when he started telling me a joke about how it's better to be short than tall because, when you're 90 years old, you get more years per square inch.

As you can see, a busy week!
