And I guess I should have known better than to question Scott. Norm was a
little less than two months shy of 71 when he died. No way to stretch that
into mid-seventies. Norm was predeceased by several years by his wife,
Norma, the Boston Herald columnist. Anyone know how their two daughters
(Sarah and Sonya, I think) are doing and what they are doing? I believe one
is a journalist--but I don't know which one, nor do I know which young woman
is the older or any of that stuff.

Now here's a great Boston Radio-by-marriage trivia question: Anyone remember
Norma Nathan's alma mater? Norm mentioned it often enough on the air. I only
THINK I know--and I'm not sure. Was it Smith College in Mass, William Smith
College in Geneva NY, or someplace else?
