Happy birthday to writer Elmore Leonard.  He’s written great stories such as “Get Shorty.”  He also proved the ‘always bring your camera with you everywhere’ rule to be true. I was once at a radio taping and I was called on to answer a question.  They asked me to go to the back of the studio so that I could speak into the microphone.  When I made my way to the back, Elmore Leonard was at the microphone doing a voice over!  I guess you know how that story ends…

Also born today: actors John Cusak and Luke Perry, artist Glen Hanson, comedienne Dawn French and jazz great Art Blakey.
