    when I started at the LAT 

    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.
