    Ever meet anyone famous?

    Got to thinking about this while reading an article about Muhammad Ali recently. I got to shake hands and have a brief conversation with him while I was a journalism student at San Jose State and he was giving a speech. This was around 1970 if my memory is correct.

    He was gracious and extremely funny. There was a drunk in the audience who came forward and challenged him to a fight. As he staggered up to him, Ali did his usual bobbing and weaving and said "That's one crazy white boy" while the crowd laughed.

    I took a night class in songwriting from Paul Simon while at San Jose State. He was a guest lecturer that night and I got to spend some time with him afterwards.

    Most of you will not know who Bob Gaudio is but he was a member of the Four Seasons and wrote "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like A Man," "Dawn," "Rag Doll," and "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You." He was my substitute teacher for a while in grammar school."
