It's a Small World

I'm not terribly proficient at Facebook. I've joined because Len did and I was curious. I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do on it. Blogging really suits me better. But this morning, when I dropped by Len's page with the intention of thanking him for the egg that hatched into an Arabian horse, did I ever stop short:

"Len Wein and Bob Woodward are now friends."

What the....? Half of Woodstein? The half that was an editor at the Washington Post when I was a freelance photographer? The one I'd see occasionally as I'd walk through the fifth floor newsroom on my way to the photo department? The one whose books I've actually read? Not that he'd know me from a hole in the ground, but he just might remember my photo credit--I shot for the Post for five years.

Oh, I can't wait to find out how this happened.

Does Bob Woodward read comics?

I have no idea at all about how Facebook works. So it's hard to leave a comment about it. I figure I have enough trouble with the blog thing, I'm not getting involved with something else right now. Hope you get to the bottom of the mystery with Wein and Woodward.

The story I got from my dearly beloved is that some other equally famous person asked to be Len's friend and when Len checked that person's friends, he saw Woodward's name and said "what the heck?"

It did make for a funny dinner conversation.
