Max, not to be pedantic, but

> read Greek in Brail.

Is Brail the American spelling or your fingers being naughty again like mine do?

@Duane: Lemme guess -- despite his running prowess, if there was only one pint left in the pitcher, you got to it first.

Hey, my tripping him up and clambering over him to get to the bar was a complete accident (he obviously couldn't hold his beer :-)

I alegedly have a town named after a great, great, great... something in my history: Benson, Minnesota.

There's also Benson, Arizona, made not-at-all famous by the movie Dark Star. No relation between me and Benson, Arizona, as far as I know. I do like the movie Dark Star, though. I think that's where the label "smart bomb" came from.

I can't forget the Benson Bubbler fountains, in Portlnad, Oregon, near where I live. That was timber baron Simon Benson' work. Again, no known relation to me.

Anyone else have a brush with fame to rival Max's?

I used to watch Sebastion Coe run. Sadly, not in person. He was one of my idols, back in my running days, along with the likes of Derek Clayton, Mary Decker, Bill Rogers, Steve Prefontaine, Frank Shorter and others.

Seb Coe frontrunner for chairperson of BBC

How exciting -- while chatting to my mom about A.E. Housman and stuff, she mentioned that my old school chum, olympic hero Sebastian Coe, is the front runner for becoming the new chairperson of the BBC.

It really is a small world. It's like that "six degrees of Kevin Bacon" thing. If you know me then you are only one hop removed from Sebastian Coe!

@Duane: I just hope that once you verify the hangman in your past...

I'm sure that he was a very nice hangman who always had a kind word for his customers...

It does make you wonder about one's various timelines though, doesn't it. There could be all sorts of unsavory characters in one's family tree, including lawyers and (whispers) even politicians...

I just hope that once you veryify the hangman in your past, you won't become more of a hangman of an editor.
