The Slice


My first newspaper boss Googled himself the other day and came across something I had written about him in this blog several weeks ago.

That prompted him to send an email with three pictures of me from the late '70s attached.

It's not the first time we have communicated in recent times. A couple of years ago, we exchanged notes and I had the opportunity then to thank him for having been an understanding first boss.

But this latest email from him, specifically the photos, was a bit of a jolt.

Looking at my ridiculously long hair, I feel I have no choice but to issue a formal apology to any young person whose attire or grooming choices I might have mocked since becoming a crotchety “Get off my lawn!” guy.
