Memory Lane with Daniel Dern

Daniel Dern writes: “I thought the Cronkite stands up item would be how he was actually  wearing pants, which the sitter (I gather) often didn't,  due to heat from the lights, etc...  [that was certainly true at KGW-TV in 1970 and 1971 when I worked there]” Separately, speaking of the  Many Pauls  (or perhaps simply a Paul anecdote), my favorite is from when I started at CMP, working for you as Byte.com's ME [summer of 1999], and when I was walking around  the Waltham, MA office (the most local to me, although I was going  to be working from home), and said hi to a woman and told her my new CMP gig, she  said, ‘I'll bet there's not a lot of dead air when you two get  together.’ -- not said unkindly or critically... and not wrong.”

No, it wasn’t wrong. Two more loquacious people would be hard to find, then or now.
