NYT: Cavett on Mailer

Dick Cavett - Opinion - New York Times Blog: "It was at a vividly bad time in Norman Mailer’s life that I met him, and a sort of water-treading time in mine. He had stabbed his wife, and I was a copy boy at Time magazine. Time had just done a rough piece on Mailer, even publishing a ghastly, wild-eyed picture of him being arraigned at the station house. The magazine’s treatment of Mailer had been been much protested, as I knew from working at the copy desk and seeing the mail."

Good stories. But speaking of the copy desk, did you notice the error that Cavett and his NYT editors missed?
