    I called him up and talked to him. He is really nice guy that would like to hear from anybody else that a star wars fan. He just asked question about star wars, like which movie did I like the best or who my favorite character was. I explained a little about our group getting together and hanging out. The charity work that the Ohio Garrison of the 501 and Jedi knights of Cleveland do. I will get my picture taken and it will appear in the Memorial Day weekend of that Friday or Sunday?s issuer. If everyone in LA I bring it to the next meeting.

    Hi! He also contacted me, and if you wouldn't mind, I would love to see a copy of his article. Very cool!

    Oh geez. My picture is gonna look like crap next to yours! ;)

    May 27th is the day that the story is supposed to run. I'll look forward to seeing other familiar names and faces in the story.

    We were interviewed for a 501st article so can someone save us a May 27th paper since we won't be home at that time to pick one up? Please and thanks :D Apparently they will have some SW stuff on the 25th as well.

    I should be able to collect a few copies. Not to worry! Hope all who are heading West have a great time. Hopefully I'll make CV.

    The only photos I saw were of myself, Shaull and his kids. Sorry Tobey if it make you feel any better I think my photo looks bad but I'm told that it was " cute"

    The articles seemed pretty good. Except that they misspelled Kim's last name in the 501st story. And in the print version they spelled my last name right in the story and wrong in the quote.

    Le sigh.
