Fridays are getting to be my favorite day—even when like this one I wont to be going to Camp D.

Main thing this morning was an interview with Fortune Mag. There were 3 of them and they were doing a feature on leadership. I think they’re trying to suggest that I can give tips to the business & corporate leaders who read Fortune. I told them I thought I was imitating the successful business leaders. I think it was a good session, now we’ll see how they write it up.

A quick lunch then an Ec. briefing—we still believe things look good. A visitor, Tyrone Ford. He is the 12 yr. old Black musician & composer who is truly a genius. We’ve been helping him through our private sector. He lives in abject poverty but we’ve got him a phone which they never had. Also a new piano. Now our people are working to get him a scholarship to college. He wants to go to Tuskegee. They are also trying to get a good home for him & his mother.

Now I’m waiting to see the Dr’s. who are going to give me a bladder exam tomorrow. A team is in from Mayo—friends of Nancys brother. Of course the press has me at deaths door & I never felt better in my life. This really is a check up I should do every several years since 20 yrs. (almost) ago Burton Smith operated & removed a couple of bladder stones. There has been no recurrence so far.
