BrodH20: Miss Louisiana Is In Our Basement!

Full post here

The Otis and I have had the honor of entertaining some genuinely cool people at our home bar. But we recently had our first quasi-celebrity guest, a Louisiana pageant queen. We got a call on a Saturday evening from a handful of Otis G regulars who wanted to stop by for a nightcap and some karaoke. I was in my PJs, already curled up in bed with the kids and watching the Bridget Jones sequel. I heard the crew come in the front door and, moments later, The Otis came upstairs. “T, you gotta come downstairs!” he said. “Miss Louisiana is in our basement” — Mommy Dearest/BrodH20.

DFO: The most impressive individual I ever met — because he didn’t seem too impressed with himself — was Cesar Chavez, in Stockton, Calif., circa 1976-77, when I was a courthouse bureau chief for a collection of outlying newspapers in the San Joaquin Valley of California.

Question: Who is a “genuinely cool” person that you’ve met?
