Sorry we’re late with this bulletin. We’re not even going to try to give an account of what happened when Ken Auletta interviewed Dick Parsons (other reporters have surely gone there). We’ll just provide some pix. The event was Syracuse University’s Newhouse School In New York Presents: Richard D. Parsons, Chairman & CEO, Time Warner, in conversation with Ken Auletta, author and New Yorker Annals of Communications Profile Writer & columnist.
It occurred at Bryant Park Grill, at 8 am.

That’s Parsons. He’s extremely tall and has very good posture. He’s very smart, too, and funny.

This was the breakfast that was served. Yogurt and granola, fruit salad and pastries. Being health nuts ourselves, we approve!
