A curious connection

I saw her again at my high school reunion as I had seen her at the two previous reunions. For over twenty years I've held a private grudge against her for firing my brother shortly before he died in a car accident on the way to his new job. She accused him of stealing with absolutely no proof. My brother wasn't a thief. I've wanted to confront her about this, get in her face and let her know how wrong she was all those years ago, but I've always restrained myself. I don't blame her for my brother's death, but obviously her poor judgment set in motion the events that led to his death. And I'm sure she's aware of this. When I ended up behind her while on line at the bar and said hello, she barely responded. That's when I knew she was aware of our curious connection. At that point, nothing else needed to be said.

R.I.P. Bruno S.

Germany's greatest actor, Bruno S., died this week. He starred in two of Werner Herzog's greatest movies: The Mystery of Kaspar Hauser and Stroszek. He was also a fan of The Mike Show (check out the 2:30 mark of the Sept. 15 show from The Best Show archive for one of my favorite moments from The Best Show). He will be sorely missed.
