Friends of P.

My parents used to let me stay up late when I was 9 to watch “All’s Fair” because of this one, who was equally adorable in “The Jerk.” Happy birthday, Bernadette!

All’s Fair”: 
The Norman Lear sitcom aired one season on CBS (from 1976 to 1977) and starred Richard Crenna as a conservative political columnist and Bernadette Peters as a liberal photographer, showcasing their romantic mismatch because of age and political opinions. About a decade later I was interning in Washington while briefly considering a career on Capitol Hill before coming to my senses during the first Bush administration.
