An unpublished letter to the editor of the New York Times

We yearn for recipes for success.

In “She held Trump’s feet to the fire”, (21-22 November 2020, Business)

Savannah Guthrie, “more than a morning TV host”, reveals hers. The ingredients:

A fundamental awareness “of not being the center of the universe”. “A sense of obligation to others”. An all-embracing heart and soul:”Raising her children in both the Christian faith and in the Jewish traditions of her husband”. And her final secret: smartness and fun. “I’m just in on the joke.”
