As it happens, tko, I've had some japanese mentors. Well, one from japan, and one a los angelino connected to a bracero family. Both had great hair. Also we had a famous sort of (edits) associate who had, as I remember it, thief tendencies. Oh, and another guy of japanese extraction.
When I presented my thesis, what a mess. I punted from the first association, the main guy was mad, simply mad, in my then opinion. Odd that I forget his name. I think so even now, as he'd have tried to organize venice into constricted grids. But wait, he was a planner. I got past all that.. and worked up a second committee.
So, never mind, what about the hair? My key pals have great hair. Silver now.
This all reminds me of a certain pr type of guy that I ran into at the hardware store.
