I was thinking about famous people I have known and I’ve concluded that the answer is . . . I don’t know any famous people. I know intelligent people, hard working people, kind people, loving people, high class and low class people, blue collar and white collar people, gay and straight people, people of varying colors and faiths, even a few rotten people, I don’t know any famous people. I can’t drop a single name.
How about you? Do you know anyone famous? And by “know” I mean that the famous person has to know your name. I once shook hands with George Bush, Sr., when he was VP, but that doesn’t count, because I was simply part of a massive receiving line after he gave a speech.
