My Encounter With David Brooks

It lasted about ten seconds.  It happened Saturday night (Feb. 3, 2018) in the Walter Kerr Theater on Broadway.  I was there with my daughter to see Springsteen on Broadway (review forthcoming).  As we stood in line to buy a “Springsteen on Broadway” t-shirt I saw a familiar face coming my way.  It was none other than New York Times columnist David Brooks.  Here was my encounter with fame:

Me: “So do you think we might be seeing a column related to this show?

Brooks: “Maybe”

He walked by and I pulled out my credit card to drop $40.00 on a concert shirt.

Hey David, I really hope you write the column.  It would go well with this and this.

Caroline got her shirt.
