Erik Olsen of the NY Times was with us back in June working on a story for the science section of the paper and shooting pics and video for the online section. Seemed pretty motivated and got some good stuff.

Just got a call from him - story is supposed to run tomorrow - Tuesday Aug 19. Should be an interesting story from a different point of view.

The story is also in the science section.
He did a pretty good job with the video. The story was kinda lame in my opinion - but I did get another quote 8)

At least your honest about it... :lol: :lol:

I have a friend who owns a rare truck. So, he and his truck are somewhat of a celebrity since about the mid to late 70s.. Anyways, in his home, on the longest wall, he has his wall of fame. Its every article, news clipping or story ever run about him and the truck. He stopped collecting in about 1996 because he ran out of wall space. :shock:

LOL...I'm not quite that bad. In fact, I don't even have a collection.

Whenever I'm quoted in the paper I usually wind up looking stupid because of a misquote or it's taken out of context. OK...sometimes I really am just stupid. 8)

I had my 'fifteen minutes of fame' in 1986 and was on CNN for an hours interview. Actually, the first 30 minutes was for the interview and the remaining time was for answering call in questions. I finally disposed of my collection of trophies and only saved the brass plaques due to space limitations.

The only collection on my wall now is my navy stuff.
