CONGRATULATIONS to my friends Emilie and Steve, who finally had their baby this afternoon!!!!!!!! (I found out tonight because George just went out for a beer with Steve’s brother Bruce, who is also a good friend of ours and was best man at our wedding. It helps to have friends in high places.) The anxiously awaited baby, who goes by the name of Daniel Joseph, clocked in at 8 lbs., 7 oz., according to my sources. Mom and baby are both doing fine.
