A Strange Ocurrence at The PostMonday, February 19, 2018
In the late 80s and early 90s writer Les Wiseman and I were dispatched by Vancouver Magazine to attend the yearly Whistler festival that featured Hollywood celebrities. The main reason we went to them is that Wiseman had the hots for Brooke Shields and she was constantly supposed to attend. She never did.
It was in the early 90s that both Wiseman and I had contracts with TV- Guide. Wiseman was assigned to write on Canadian actor Bruce Greenwood and told me that I should tell the folks at TV Guide that I had pictures of him. The art director at the magazine told me that they were not interested in any images that I had as they wanted photographs that were taken by American photographers in LA. I sent my pictures anyway.

They made the cover and the inside.
This last Sunday Rosemary and I went to see Stephen Spielberg’s The Post. We enjoyed the film immensely perhaps because the events of the film were events that happened shortly after we were married in Mexico City in 1968.
When the actor playing Defense Secretary Robert McNamara appeared I was instantly alerted to a nagging suspicion. This was confirmed at the end in the closing credits.
