Cat saved by Fifth Third Bank “doing great”

Update for animal lovers: I just received a Christmas card from the woman who in 2012 adopted Boots, the cat saved by Fifth Third Bank:

“Boots is doing great. She is happy and healthy. She loves spending cold nights on the rug in front of the sun room’s gas stove. She loves my dog. She is a pure joy in my life. I feel as though I’ve known her since she was born.”

Joe Lieberman, ex-senator, named chairman of Chicago investment firm

I had a scoop in the Dec. 24 Chicago Tribune about Joe Lieberman, the former U.S. senator and 2000 vice presidential nominee, becoming chairman of a Chicago-based investment firm. I interviewed him, as well as some of the firm’s principals, for about 15 minutes over the phone on Monday. Lieberman, who is primarily living in New York these days, sounds exactly like he does on C-SPAN and the Sunday morning talk shows. I had to interrupt him a few times during the interview because I knew my time with him was limited and there were questions I had to squeeze in.
