    Oh, yeah, and tell Epstein to cut to the basket.

    He's a legal celebrity at least.

    Nah. Too busy doing Brazilian scratching, biting and hair pulling.

    I've described here my run-ins (literally) with Bonny Raitt and Ross Perot, both in the course of ten days, and meeting Lefty Krey in a fly shop in Santa Rosa back in the eighties. About the only other is having been introduced to Kurt Russel at Grant's Camp on Kennebago Lake here in Maine. Mr. Russel was a dock boy there in his youth and often comes back to book a cabin and fish. He's been known to land his private helicopter in a sandpit about a hundred yards from the back gate, though I don't know if polishing is really all that good for the rotors.

    Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that Colonel Potter once pulled me out of a ditch and gave me a ride home after a bicycle accident. His last words to me (after a lengthy stare) were, "You'd think a grown man could find a less silly to exercise."

    Another fun one I just remembered. Emo Phillips such a sweet and intelligent gentleman.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    The morning of the race I was there and so was Paul Newman and JoAnn Woodward

    That is cool. There is a documentary about Newman called "Wining." Same name as his racing movie. He was really good at it.

    He also liked sleeper cars.

    "We have to find someone who can not only fly this plane, but who didn't have fish for dinner."

    Crooow:This music would work better with women in bikinis shaking all over the place. I guess that's true of any music really.
