      I don’t think Dorothy Parker was the victim of the famous, but perhaps apocryphal, Calvin Coolidge quip. She didn’t cover the White House. She lived in New York when in the East. He probably wouldn’t invite her to any other fete. However, she was dining with the Algonquin Roundtable group when someone brought the news: “Calvin Coolidge has died.” To which she responded, “How can they tell?” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/18/AR2007011801946.html
