charles: good night

Charles Nelson Reilly
January 13, 1931 – May 25, 2007

To say I "met" Mr. Reilly at Carnegie Hall in the late 90s would be a gross over-statement of the truth. Passing each other in the lobby and recognizing him immediately, I gave him my best "Hihowyadoin", to which he graciously replied, "Very well, thank you young man".

You know, it's the little things you remember about people.
