"When Ambassador Andrew Young was sworn in as the U.S. Ambassador for the United Nations under President Jimmy Carter, he traveled to visit his wife's hometown. While there he noticed a man sitting off in the distance and said to his wife, '...honey, you see..., you COULD have married that wino over there...' And without missing a beat she shot back, '...well, if I did, HE would be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations!"
A classic, and a true story. Dedicated to the memory of the late great Jean Child Young
