It Ain't Everyday You Meet Someone Famous

In the course of our daily lives in DC, we bump into some famous-for-DC types--last fall we spotted Teresa Heinz Kerry at Mass--but who really cares?

Besides, our bosses, not unskilled in the art of name dropping, often bring up stories about talking with Reagan or, in the case of some of the truly gray-haired old-timers, Eisenhower, so modern day famous-for-DC is really nothing worth mentioning. Today, though, we met an artist, Gunther Gumpert, who has 1) a cool name 2) a stereotyped French accent and wild, uncontrolled white hair and 3) a real claim to fame outside of DC a la his painting career.

And we are very jealous of him for having groupies in NY, Paris, and Berlin in addition to his DC mistress.
