THREE RANDOM FACTS:

1) I was almost crushed by the falling facade of a building in Budapest. I owe my life to the cream and sugar I put in my coffee that morning. Without them, I would have been five seconds ahead and would not have been able to classify the incident as a near-miss. Moral of the story: cream and sugar really are good for you.

2) I was in the White House Easter Bunny costume and getting ready to be led outside and onto the stage with the President when someone more important (it could have been the presidential dog walker at that point in my career) arrived. I was hastily stripped out of the costume, so the other bunny enthusiast could be prepped for the big moment. I, of course, have numerous pictures of me excitedly getting into the bunny suit to remind me of my fall from bunny glory.

3) I got second place in the U.S. Judo Association’s National Championships in 1979.
