Spring Break 1987
Twenty years ago this month I won the first David Letterman Telecommunications Scholarship given to a screenwriter. Back then the award consisted of a collapsible cup, a sponge, a baseball cap, a big check, and VIP tickets to the show. So that spring break my pregnant wife and I climbed into our 1980 Mercury Monarch and headed out. My daughter leaves on her Senior Trip to New York tomorrow, her first time out of the womb but her second trip overall. And so it goes.
