Hello everyone, From the book Thank You for Being Late by Thomas Friedman. After he left government, Vice President Walter Mondale once invited the Coen brothers, Franken, and Ornstein to submit letters for a dinner event Mondale and I were doing together back in Minneapolis— letters that would try to explain what they thought was going on in St. Louis Park back in the 1950s and 1960s. He later published them in the Minnesota Star Tribune on December 5, 1999. Here are some excerpts of what they wrote: Dear Mr. Vice President, It is my honor to write a letter that you can read aloud in your introduction of my friend Tom Friedman. What does "in your introduction of my friend Tom Friedman" mean? Thank you.
