Reports of Budge Sperling’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. In a post yesterday about Rep. Tom Davis, I erroneously referred to “the late Budge Sperling”, who created and for years hosted the Sperling/Monitor newsmaker breakfasts that are a Washington institution. As David Cook of the Monitor kindly informed me this morning, Budge, 92, retired from breakfast hosting, but he is very much alive and living with his wife, Betty, in Chevy Chase. This was my mistake, and I apologize to the Sperlings and to Swampland readers!
