I also had an appointment scheduled with Tiger Woods, but had to cancel due to a personal emergency, something I still regret today. And as a boy, the mother of my very best friend was Velma Barfield (then Burke), the first woman executed in the U.S. (1984, I believe) since 1962. What made that so memorable for me was that she killed people by poisoning their food, and she prepared many a good meal for me. I guess she liked me.

Have you ever met/known any of the people who make the news?
