This was a busy one. A prayer breakfast—17,000 people—a magnificent 2200 voice choir. George introduced me & I spoke of the place of religion in a Democracy. It was a truly inspirational meeting. Went back to interviews with George Skelton & Hugh Sidey. Then to address an Hispanic lunch then a fundraising lunch—didn’t eat at either one. Met with Ron Walker & Mike McManus re the evening event. They had put together a T.V. tape to act out what I’d be doing and it was funny as h--l. Then free time until I headed for the hall to do my acceptance speech. After the speech & demonstration—Ray Charles sang “America The Beautiful.” We had a reception for about 160—many of them are old friends. We were both pooped & glad to get to bed.
