His quote in full: "Any company executive who overcharges the government more than $5 million will be fined $50 or have to go to traffic school three nights a week.". Art Buchwald (1926-2007), a Marine Corps veteran of World War II, spent most of the 1950s in Paris, writing various columns referring to life in the United States and Europe. After returning to the United States from Europe in 1962, he began a syndicated humor column heavy on political satire. Based at The Washington Post, Buchwald appeared in over 500 newspapers at his peak. In 1982, Buchwald was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Outstanding Commentary. He wrote over forty books, his last one titled Beating Around the Bush (2005). These books include various anecdotes about Buchwald's experiences as a member of the press, including an insightful 1959 interview with Elvis Presley in Paris, France. In early 2006, Buchwald entered hospice, refusing dialysis for his failing kidneys and other extreme treatments to prolong his life. He continued to give television interviews and write occasional columns until he passed away. Fine condition.
