Mentor Remains Alive

The continued life of Stewart Albey, 86, remains a source of huge frustration to his protege, Scott Toler, say sources.

Albey, a retired journalist, continues to live despite using his wit and wisdom to turn around the life of Toler, who was having a mid-life crisis. While Toler was at first grateful, Albey’s continued health has begun to jeopardize his upcoming memoir, Weekends with Stewart.

“On the day he told me that all of life is like a pearl in a river, I was so sure he was going to turn around and say “Plus I have cancer.” Said a bitter Toler. “But he’s in great shape. When he last went to the doctor’s he got a nurse’s phone number. Man, half the book is about the importance of letting go. Where’s the narrative justice?”
