Tom Brokaw’s Drink of Choice? ‘Home-brew lemon vodka’

Former “NBC Nightly News” anchor Tom Brokaw gets profiled by New York magazine, and answers their pithy questions with aplomb. Among the best:

What’s your drink?

We have a Polish audio technician with whom I have worked all over the world for years. He makes a killer home-brew lemon vodka. We have shared shots with Gorbachev, and toasted the fall of the Berlin Wall, the visit of Pope John Paul to Warsaw, the release of Nelson Mandela, and most of the historic events of the last 30 years. I want to be buried with a milk bottle of Majik’s lemon vodka.

In one sentence, what do you actually do all day in your job?

Cure cancer, mediate the Israeliā€“Palestinian stand-off, write Jon Stewart’s monologue, tend a falafel stand on 42nd Street, walk my dog, and take a nap.

Plenty more at NY Mag.
