Dear Diary,

There was an article in this month’s Reader’s Digest about Jack White, co-owner of the Club 18 in New York. His policy is that the customer always wrong. He has insulted some of the best-known people in the country, and always gets the best of his verbal opponents. He called Bob Hope to the floor one night and challenged him to a verbal duel. Bob tried hard, and did as well as anyone had ever domes against White, but even Bob had to give up when White said, “Here, use my microphone. It’s funnier.” — And Jack White is without enemies! What a man!
