Former Georgia Tech/Navy/Georgia Southern football coach Paul Johnson on ATL-PHX today.

Taking advantage of retirement I guess.

I just walked past Queen Latifah in the Delta Sky Club at Newark Airport.

I wasn't sure if it was her or not, but, everybody was waving as she walked past, so I kinda figured.

Al Gore and a whole bunch of his team. ATL to BNA last Saturday afternoon. Got on the plane first (or so I thought) and half of first class was already full. Al was in A1 with A2, 2C, 2D, 3C, and 3D filled with his people. I've never had a captain come back and shake everyone's hand in FC before take off and thank us for flying Delta before that trip (especially on such a short flight).

Don't laugh....Peter Lynch, Fidelity Magellan Fund manager, across the aisle in F. Yes, I know, not a movie or TV star but I thought he had star status. Years ago.

I won't laugh but he does pale in comparison to someone who is TV and movie star, plus invented the internet.

Not to be picky, but Former Fidelity Magellan manager (and its been a long time). That said he did have star status and his books I thought were excellent reading for those who wanted to learn a bit more about investing without going too technical as they were well written. In fact just a year or so ago a fellow investment professional colleague asked if I had any ideas for a book that would be good for a client who wanted to gain better general investment knowledge and I mentioned the Peter Lynch books and he "Oh yeah, those were good, excellent idea"

Robert Irvine (Food Network) was in the next F row up and over from me on my flight from TPA to ATL on 3/19. Dude is just as big in person as he is on TV.

Afroman (rapper) CVG-DEN 3/27. Came on board all decked out in a huge fur coat, big thick gold chain, brown velour suit, huge gold rings on each finger (look up his videos and you will know what symbols were on the rings) and a brief case that was bedazzled and had pics of other famous rappers on it. He was fun to talk to and I could tell he did not take himself seriously, but enjoyed life!

Pat Richter (former Wisconsin athletic director that brought Wisconsin collegiate athletics back to glory) RSW to MSN. Very personable guy and was easy and willing to talk.
