I didn't realize until I saw Gary's photo on the Bloomberg piece. Yes...met him down at The Square in March. He is very down-to-earth and I was shocked that the person we were chatting with was Gary Morse! Very very nice man and very unassuming!

I know, I didn't think Gracie was Gary Morse in disguise, I just thought it was funny.

This past Sunday at Brownwood (in Central Lake, MI) I met Gary's sister and had my picture taken with her making donuts.

Frankie Avalon

Met him several years ago at the Pittsburgh International Airport while waiting to pick up a friend. I still have his autograph.

Shared e-mails and/or letters with Elie Wiesel, Tom Clancy, someone claiming to be "George Clooney" and a few others not as famous about activities for survivors of various kinds of crimes I have been involved in and hurdles faced in these since leaving the University of Minnesota Law Library's employ in mid-1991.
Never did find out if this was the real George Clooney but really doubt it. This was in answer to a bunch of posts I made on Findlaw's message boards from around 2001 through 2005. Got e-mails because of these from interesting people.

I had dinner with Senator Kennedy in 1987 when he came out to my ship (CV-41) in the Persian Gulf region. Don't agree with almost any of his politics, but that man was a heck of a politician. He could politic with the best of them. He wasn't back home but a couple of days when my father got a call from him (personaly) letting him know how I was doing.

In my career I've meet a few hundred famous people over the years, and gotten to interview most of them. Just like the rest of us, some nice, some not so much. My highlight was seeing Toni Tennille in her underwear. Sure wish her husband, and my wife hadn't of been there. Yeah, like that would have made any difference. And for those of you asking, powder blue.
