    WOW, I think that is a great story. The story was not about Leonard but about a man who is "important", but still takes the time to be interested in other humans! Some celebrities (MOST) would not do such a noble thing.[smile]

    I have seen some transparent attempts to blatantly "name drop", while making it sound like just "part of the story" but, this column sets a whole new standard.

    Seems to me the husband should have been gentleman enough to introduce his wife to his interlocutor but, was so blinded by the celebrity he forgot she was there. Sir Dicky was forced to step forward and do the right thing.

    Great life lesson Leonard, thanks...
