Back in the early 1980's, I lived outside of Washington D.C. My roommate and I went into Georgetown (bar district) on his birthday. We were in some small but classy bar - all I remember of it was the wood paneling - and I was trying to get the bartender to give my friend a free drink.

Some guy behind me says, "I'll buy you both a drink." I turned around and standing there was Ted Kennedy. He bought a couple of drinks and one for himself. We went over to a table and chatted for a while. Some suit came up and whispered in his ear; he excused himself and left.

Now my personal politics are about as directly opposed as you can get from the late Senator. But I have to say he was gracious, likable and genuinely a nice guy to have a drink with. I understand how he did well in politics, with that kind of personality.

No, but I might be meeting Jeff Gordon next time I go to a race, will definitely get pics of that! He is like the only famous person I idolize. I idolized The Intimidator too, but getting a pic with him is never going to happen unfortunately. A friend of mine told me how the voice actor for Batman in the animated show used to come eat at the restaurant he worked at when he was a dishwasher. Can't remember what the guy's name was, but it wasn't the actor that played in The Dark Knight movies. That's saying something for a tiny hick town in Montana though!
