No doubt. It was a 45 minute ride across Chicago at 2 AM some years ago. My friend described him as very talkative and overly friendly.

From working in the Biz in New York, Ive met

P.Diddy 3 times, full convos

Jay-Z, small talk 1 time

Queen Latifa, we shared a good joke before I realized who I was talking to.

Nas, I will keep my opinion to myself

Snoop Dog just walking out a hotel on 59th Street New York

Some one in politics, we shared a glass of red wine together, but cant remember who he was, but he was up there.

A whole lot of models and fashion designers.

No real TV stars, because in my opinion to meet some one is to more then just see them in person. I met alot more, but the above mentioned I had conversations with that ment something.

I had dinner with Scott Crossfield at a location where he was giving a speech, great pilot and nice guy.
Met General Paul Tibbets the commander of the Enola Gay at a gun show, we had a nice conversation about the B 29 he flew, and that I have some photos of as it was being restored at the Smithsonian shops (Garber Facility).
Met Ted Kennedy, he was half drunk, but I guess that’s normal for him.
Met and spoke with George Takai, Sulu on Star Trek, He was appointed to the board of directors of the Southern California Rapid Transit District, making him part of the team that initiated and planned the Los Angeles subway system.
Met Harvey Korman at La Guardia Airport, he’s a big guy.
G. Gordon Liddy, at National Airport, he’s not the kind of guy that you would want to screw with….
Drove Darrell Green in the Washington Cherry Blossom Parade
A few others, like Pele', but mostly only in passing at an airport...........

Oddly, of all the models who came before and all the models who have come since, none can compare to Cheryl Tiegs.

Oh yes, and I did meet cascade once, in a bar in Sacramento.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Damn, he was in Florida earlier in the year stalking other board members at the Rolex.

Speaking of which...Mid Ohio, July 20-22, what is your schedule. PM me.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
