Now that I have more followers, I will ask again. Have you ever met a person who once was/is famous? If so, who?

People famous in my world, maybe not so much in others'... Jane Goodall, briefly (although she was kind enough to write me a letter once). The 1958 Nobel Prize awardee (in Physiology or Medicine) Joshua Lederberg was a member of my professional

Richard Nixon in 1972. Of course, I was only nine years old and really only said hello and shook his hand.

Joe Nichols. I know who he is. Very beautiful though I don't listen to his music because I don't like country. I met him twice when I worked at Jason's Deli. He loves salads and drives a BMW:)

Probably... hard to say. But I probably would have been too shy anyway. I was pretty shy around Ginsberg, & he was there a lot.

I worked for Reggie Jackson for a year or so back in the late 80's in Oakland. He owned a Chevy dealership where I ran the finance department.

I honestly don't remember much of what Ram Dass said... I just remember him hanging around the house for the better part of a day, talking with one of our older members mostly. And this may sound odd... especially from a totally non-spiritual person

such as myself, but I remember him as being bathed in a pool of sunshine while they sat & talked. (In the foggy part of San Francisco we were in, sunshine is pretty rare in itself!)

Well that makes sense, if you were very spiritual you probably would have wanted to interact with him more?

society, as were a number of scientists whose names are in college biology textbooks but whom everyone forgets when the class is over. Eula Bingham, national head of OSHA under Carter, was my very first boss, when she was a young researcher.
