A Princeton of a pal

by DOUG CAMILLI (Feelance)

Yes, that really was former White house press secretary Michael McCurry doing a guest spot of Ally McBeal last week. It turns out that he's not a big fan of the show - never seen a whole episode, usually goes to bed early. But he did go to Princeton, in the '70s, with McBeal producer David E.Kelley, so when Kelley called him, McCurry was happy to help.

There is no truth to the rumour that the show's writers are trying to get Slick Willie himself to come into the fictional Boston law firm and hit on all the babes. Clinton didn't go to Princeton, and besides, that sort of thing will have to wait until Clinton is out of office and divorced.
