Yay Mitch!

Hi Bruce! I hope all is well with you. I've now
lived in LA for about 35 years. It must have been
a big transition for you to come to Columbia in
the early 60s. I only met one other person there
from LA and I never considered how different it
must have been. But you must have been here in
the golden age before the traffic.

I've enjoyed reading your work on film and
especially on horror movies. I have two
daughters and when they were small they
used to get frightened of scart movies.
I counseled them to remember that no
matter what was on the screen, just outside
the camera's range was a guy drinking a
diet Coke. Very effective!

Please let me know if you're ever coming
to LA. Text is 323 422 1743. Onward.


Mitch, These are great stories!
