A day after the third Trump and Clinton debate, they’ll be on stage together again. Watch on CSPAN.

Did you know that our presidential candidates, Trump and Clinton, will appear on stage together tonight? They will.

According to Variety, “Both candidates are scheduled to attend the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York. For decades, the two major party presidential candidates have appeared together at the dinner—taking a break from the acrimony on the campaign trail to each share moments of levity. The jabs at each other have been polite, and the best jokes have been the ones they have made about themselves.”

The dinner, this evening, benefits Catholic Charities. It’s named for the former New York governor who was the first Catholic to achieve a major party nomination. In 1928 Smith was defeated by Herbert Hoover.

The Smith Foundation Dinner is for a good cause so what could possibly go wrong? I’m thinking plenty. For those of you who can’t access CSPAN, I’ll try to post a video as soon as the network makes it available.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
