Chevy Chase shares a memory about Gerald Ford.
From the article:
IN recent days, I've been bombarded by requests to comment on my relationship with President Gerald Ford. Until now, I've tried to say nothing — any remarks from me during the Ford family's private time of grief would have been inappropriate.
The requests were understandable, I guess. You see, I made a reputation for myself 30 years ago on "Saturday Night Live" in part because of a number of sketches and "Weekend Updates" that I wrote or appeared in ridiculing Mr. Ford for his apparent "stumble-bumbling" (though he was perhaps the best athlete to have been president) and making fun of his presidency.
Luckily for me, Mr. Ford had a sense of humor.
