Gene Wilder has been getting a lot of press recently because he has a new memoir out. He was on Diane Rehm yesterday and I heard a good chunk of his interview before I went off to work. He told Diane she was beautiful which I thought was sweet. Today I read an article about him and his book and I found out he is 71 years old. 71! For some reason I still find that hard to believe. How in the hell did this happen? I know it's no great accomplishment or oddity for someone to reach 71 years but I had no idea Gene Wilder was a senior citizen. I'm over my initial shock now. I just thought you should know.
