A Political Endorsement for Bob Blumenfield

Bob Blumenfield is seeking to be elected to the California State Assembly (AD #40). I went to High School with Bob 25 years ago. This last sentence doesn't sound good to a "young guy" like me but it is true. I hadn't seen Bob for 25 years but we were reunited this Saturday at a great event in Bel Air. I took one look at him and recognized him. My mother has a powerful eye for faces. She can spot celebrities in crowds and people she hasn't seen for years. I have inherited this "gift" and it leads to funny social interactions. Bob was a bit surprised when I told him what High School he attended long ago. I think he recognized me. Do I look the same as I did 25 years ago?
You can go to my webpage to see an old picture to judge for yourself.

I'm excited that a smart guy like Bob is actively engaged in politics and I'm hoping to help him get elected. I would ask you, my readers, to go to his website and get involved.

Perhaps I should quote some JFK and Ted Sorenson line now;

"Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans - born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace."
