I remember well the social columns by Mrs. Gladding and Mrs. Byrd, as well as the ones by Julia Robertson and Isabelle Leach. I considered them, and their readers, to be the height of nosiness and I took great delight is making up outrageous stories and experiences and feeding them to these ladies who published them without question.
