Covering the Front and Back Pages of the Newspaper

It's always a little surprising to see people you know, even people you don't know that well, show up in the newspapers. This woman is a friend of my wife, has kids in our kids' classes (as does the author of the piece, for that matter). This guy is the husband of a former lawyer with my firm. This guy, a former college classmate, has a new reality show coming up for CBS called "Fire Me, Please," which is apparently based on a BBC show called "Sack Race." This guy, the creator of (and loosely-based inspiration for) this short-lived prime time show, is the brother of another friend of my wife and I from college.

Of course, the most disturbing example I've had (other than September 11) of someone you know showing up in the news was the time an elderly former next-door neighbor of ours here in Queens was identified in the NY Daily News as being targeted for deportation because he had been identified as a Nazi prison camp guard.
