Here's an interesting Bob Thomas article/interview from not long before Jack became ill. If I recall correctly, this clipping came from TBG's BEAUTIFUL BALLOONS column.

If you're a Jack Benny fan, click on the newly added Bear Manor Media link to the right to order the new Benny book, WELL! REFLECTIONS ON THE LIFE AND CAREER OF JACK BENNY (featuring myself and a bunch of other excellent writers).
