DEAR NEWTY: A LETTER FROM LAZLO
Lazlo Toth, who lives in Marin County and sometimes calls
himself Don Novello, is still waiting for a response to his letter to
Newt Gingrich, R-Ga. Toth wrote to the House Speaker in early April
to congratulate him on the first 100 days of the new Congress.
``Those were the days, my friend! You did it! Let me go and put on
a hat so I can take it off to you. . . .
``I, too, had a great 100 days, over the last hundred days or so.
I didn't do anything fancy, like not voting in term limits, but I got
a little bird-watching in, I did a little fertilizing, I put about a
hundred miles on my rake, and I painted my house. The house painting
took up almost the whole 100 days because of all the rain and because
I painted it camouflage, and it's a lot harder than just slapping the
paint on. . . .
``But it was worth it. The house came out looking great. From down
the hill you can hardly see it.''
Toth has received no response yet.
