We're familiar with Miss Manners work but wouldn't dream of being familiar with Miss Manners herself.

Conversing with the matchless Judith Martin
I know you are all familiar with the work
of the inimitable (if syndicated) Judith Martin
Miss Manners, but I dared to presume that you have not come across this 2005 interview with her. In it she discusses the process of becoming Miss Manners, the cyclical nature of etiquette, her historical predecessors, sumptuary laws in Renaissance-era Venice, and the respective natures of aristocratic and democratic etiquette. Fascinating read.
