INTERVIEWER: Is there anything else that you would like to say that we haven’t talked about that ought to be said?

WRIGHT: No. The only thing that I’d like to say was I think that it’s good that the Page Center is doing this. Hopefully you’re able, in this process, to interview people who are far greater and better than me, but I’m very happy that this is being done, and I commend the directors of the Page Center, and of course Larry Foster, for his initiative in establishing this in the first place. It’s exercises such as these that are going to make public relations much better tomorrow than it is today. So I would throw praise back at you folks, and thank you.

INTERVIEWER: Thank you. Don Wright.
