bdemaria and JDiver,

Just to clarify, I am aware "The Duke" is dead ... (yeesh! I'm not that young!).

This guy was a look-alike. And a pretty good one, too ...

cheers!

Alec Baldwin was on my flight from BOS to LAX (AA 725) this past Sat. 9/15. Kept to himself for the most part but was very pleasant to people if they said hi to him.

Michael Moore

I could be wrong because I suffer celebrity myopia but I think I spotted Michael Moore in the DFW Admirals Club (D Terminal) last Friday.

I wonder if there was a severe shortage of snacks after he came through.

No, but he sat on the left of the plane.

Coach/Commentator Jimmy Johnson (again) on this morning's LAX-FLL nonstop, looking tan and fit. He was by himself, and aside from one man in the waiting area, his privacy was respected. He was NOT wearing any of his Super Bowl rings. He pulled a small DVD player out of a Super Bowl XXXIII duffel bag after the meal service (maybe he was watching NFL Films highlights).

About two years ago...sat next to country singer Gary Allan (Herzberg) from PSP to DFW. Nobody on the flight but me recognized him...and he was a very nice guy to talk to.

Shared a row with Tori Spelling from DFW to LAS on 9/27. Also very nice and plain spoken.

Both were sitting in economy oddly enough.
