Letitia Baldridge's real mission
If you read the headline on her obituary in The New York Times, referring to her as an "etiquette maven," or The Washington Post's description of her as the "doyenne of decorum," you might have an image of Letitia Baldridge as a stern, exacting schoolmarm who would rap you on the knuckles for using the wrong fork. From my one experience with her, she was nothing like that.
