A few years ago, I noted in print how I had recognized a guy in the parking lot outside the post office on South Grand but had been unable to come up with his name.
At first, at least. Eventually it came to me.
It was Irish politician Gerry Adams.
Of course, I realized after about half a second that this could not be the answer.
But I still find myself making similar unlikely connections.
This afternoon in Albertsons, I saw a guy I was sure I recognized. But I couldn't come up with his identity right away.
Then it hit me: That's movie/TV producer Judd Apatow.
Again, not likely. But we keep hearing that it's a global economy, so who knows.
