Prophetic, it seems

On this, Candice Bergen's 62nd birthday, I am going to give a shout-out to actor Grant Shaud, who played her frazzled executive producer Miles Silverberg on Murphy Brown from 1988-1998.

Back in the early 1990s, my 7th-grade classmates joked that I was a little bit like Miles. Close, but no cigar.

He's was in TV; I'm in some other medium. He went to Harvard; I went to some other Massachusetts school. One thing they did get right: The glasses.

I'm gonna buy you an industrial-sized bottle of Pepto-Bismol, just like Miles used to keep in his desk.

You are both funnier and better looking than Miles. Unfortunately, I doubt any of your coworkers looks like Candace Bergen. He has you there.
