I met Mel White a number of years ago when I participated in the first march on Lynchburg. I couldn't understand why I couldn't get through to him when we performed New World Waking in San Francisco. Then a few weeks ago, we put on Amazing Race, Jim's favorite show, and there he was with his son, Mike, who's a hilarious actor and writer. Of course we couldn't get through. They were taping the show!
Sadly, they got thrown off. However, they're going to be on Fresh Air on NPR.
