Weak headline
harks back to my career as part time journalist (columnist) 1966-72.
Dear Prof. Colombo --
As I was one of the first (1962) to caution about "markets", I was especially interested in the demythoporesis [?] you gave us in Paris.
It was a pleasure to meet you.
Joshua Lederberg.
[stamped, Professor Joshua Lederberg
