    The most famous person I ever met was Neil Armstrong.

    The most infamous person I have met is Hilary Clinton.

    I met Mr. Armstrong at Lebanon Racetrack, Lebanon, OH where he was sitting in the stands with virtually no one noticing who they were sitting next too. I introduced myself by way of noticing that it was a cold spring night. So I went to the concession stands and bought two cups of coffee and went back and gave them to Mr. Armstrong and the lady he was with. I spoke with him briefly and then let him be.

    I met Mrs. Clinton at a small book store in a small town in Arkansas. This was around 1990 or 91. The topic was Southern Literature. Mrs. Clinton gave a short lecture on literature and her fondness for it. Then everyone grabbed a beer from the keg in the back office the book store and just mingled and talked about books. I spoke briefly with her about the novel “The Sound and The Fury”. She struck me as a bit incongruous at that time cause she looked like a grad school TA until she started speaking an sounded like a college professor.

    We did a little round table thing where we introduced ourselves and stated the name of our favorite Southern Author when I said “Winston Groome” and a number of people said “Oh, I love him.” and Mrs. Clinton was one of them. This was like 3 or 4 years before the movie Forest Gump came out.

    I don't have a social circle that would be in a position to introduce me to anyone famous, and the few times I have seen someone famous in public I never approached them, I figured they would want their privacy and personal space respected.

    In a combat situation it is about 16 times better to do something useful and violent right away than to wait and figure out something even more useful and violent later.
