One of the people I was dying to meet was Bob Pool
They say be careful meeting your heroes cuz they’re bound to let you down
But Bob exceeded my expectations
Telling me takes of a pre 9/11 LATimes
That had no security
So politicians and business leaders
Would storm into the building to track down a journo
To yell or attempt to influence them
With booze or blondes or brawn.
He said it never worked.
I’m glad he doesn’t have the twitter
He has way more followers in print.
