Fame without Money sucks.
Now I might as well work at being famous. Still the Fountainhead is about how one is rightly famous from doing good work, unhealthy instead of for being rich, bronchi or for pursuing fame for its own sake only.
Told yesterday I'm headed inexorably to the same fate as Christopher Reeves. What the hell, I aint really got much to lose anymore. Time for me looks shorter and shorter everyday. 58 is not 48, its 58. You yuts can take my word for it.
Roberts Rules of Order are the bedrock of good governance. – just thought I'd throw that in there.
Anyway Famous People I have met, or worked on set with enough to take their measure.
Sort of in order, and maybe not.

The nature of fame has its up sides and downs. You know you are famous when you are cartooned.
I'll probably think of other famous people I've taken proximity measure of, but those are the ones that crossed my mind right now.
I have done what they do. Book out, been on TV, on the radio, have website, in papers, and been beat up lots of times.
I'm 58 and I'm basically physically crippled and broke, so I've got little to lose.
@Transcendian, RussellScottDay on fb, Transcendia Speech on Youtube, Homeless Dog at the kindlestore.
Beni Avini of the New York Post told me things and wrote about me for Haretz.
One failing of mine has been that I haven't given enough speeches.
