73. Henry Winkler was my college-graduation speaker.
I was within arm's length of Dustin Hoffman at AFI when he asked one of my coworkers where the bathroom was. I'm only average height, but I towered over him.

A few years ago, I met Ray Manzarek from The Doors and got his autograph and pic at a book signing. Another musician I met was Black Thought from The Roots (Jimmy Fallon's band now).

And a few months ago, I got a pic and autograph from David Simon, creator of "The Wire" (one of the greatest shows ever) and author of "Homicide" (which the show was based on) and "The Corner."
