Celebrity-spotting: Ben Fong-Torres

Finally had dinner at the much-lauded Mission Chinese Food.  The place reeked (in a good way) of cumin.  We had the #17 and #20.  They were out of this world, but very:

The highlight was having rock journalist Ben Fong-Torres sit at the table next to us.  He seemed like a real down-to-earth guy.  A righteous dude, you might say.

Despite spending nearly half my life in Southern California, I hardly saw any celebrities.  The most famous person I met as a child was Edie McClurg, the school secretary from Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Sadly noting that his sister Shirley recently passed away.
