So I think I am completly and totally star struck. Last night, Phil Donahue star of The Phil Donahue Show, also known as Donahue, walked by my desk with Frank Mankowitz, Vice Chairman of H&K and former press secretary for Bobby Kennedy. You can say I'm easily impressed, but if you think about it, these people have met, worked with, or are actually the who's who of the who!!!!
Phil Donahue was at H&K to meet with Mankowitz and Douglas Smith about a documentary feature he produced called Body of War. The film tells the story of Tomas Young, a severely disabled Iraq War veteran and his turbulent postwar adjustments. Naturally, some members of the H&K team were invited to a private screening. They, in turn, took me along. Guess who was in the audience!?! Ralph Nader, consumer advocate, lawyer, author and presidential candidate.
Our H&K DC office has got some serious connections- and I have a feeling this is just the tip of the iceberg.
