Love David Dillon’s Vail Valley Voices columns
Vail, CO, Colorado
I can’t tell you how much I enjoy David Dillon’s Valley Voices. I was on the floor Thursday reading his “Thought about last words?” It was the highlight of my day. The Tallulah Bankhead quotation had me in hysterics. How many people even remember her anymore? I wonder. I recall, many years ago, my Southern gram telling me of having seen her on Broadway and what a wonderful actress and colorful character she was. Being from Alabama just like Tallulah, my gram was always partial to her.
I took notice when Dillon wrote that wonderful article about the loss of his father to suicide awhile back (which I e-mailed to everyone I know), and it is always a treat when I open up the Daily to see a column or letter from him. His funny and touching homage to Tony Bennett was as good as anything I have read. Whether he is insightfully writing about something serious, pulling no punches in his views or applying his delightful humor to everyday events, I never fail to read what he has to say. It is always thoughtful, always on target and always entertaining.
Very refreshing. Thank you.
