75. I spent the evening with Michael Moore in Flint while he waited for reviews for "Roger & Me"
I had reason to be at the Genesee County Bar Association in Flint that evening while the New York premiere of "Roger & Me" was held; it was '88 or '89 as I recall. He was there waiting for the NY reviews to be faxed to him. I recall that he wore a Detroit Tigers hat. . . Anyway, I had heard of him as a writer in Michigan, so I stuck around to wait for the reviews to come in, and we had a nice evening of it with good conversation. Once they arrived, and of course they were great, we were both happy. Cool evening, and I will see him again in Traverse City, hopefully this summer.

Then there was 1976, when a high school junior who lived down the block named Madonna Ciccone attended my wedding reception with my new brother in law, who ended up in jail. But that's another story.
