NYT’s Gail Collins chats with David Letterman

An excerpt:
DAVID LETTERMAN: Now let’s just say I live to be 90, will there still will be a published, hand-held paper version of the New York Times or will it all be electronic?

GAIL COLLINS: Well, there will be a hand-held version — something in your hands.

LETTERMAN: But it won’t necessarily be paper.

COLLINS: I can’t promise paper — I hope it’s paper. …I like paper, I’m going to go for paper.

“Gotta get over before we go under,” correct?

Another reader tweets a response to me:

Collins was on the show to promote her book, “William Henry Harrison.”
