For them what hain't heard, LASFS has been the subject of a newspaper story. Bob Young has been writing a piece on the club for the L.A. Times' "Living Well" section. It's aimed at seniors, and he wanted to interview members in the "over 50" age group.
After an exchange of e-mails, Bob managed to make it to the club on the Thursday before Worldcon. ("Dude! Where's your timing???") He managed to interview a number of members, including Larry Niven, nitroace and son, and Doug Crepeau.
I invited him to come by the club some afternoon when it wasn't so crowded, and give him a tour of the facilities. After a 40-minute phone conversation, we agreed to get togeter at the clubhouse on August 23, at 4:30 PM.
( ...and THEN what happened...Collapse )
The article will appear in the L.A. Times "Living Well" section on September 20. So far, it appears it's going to have a positive and respectful take on us weirdos. At least, that's my feeling about the whole thing. Now to cross my fingers and hope I'm not disappointed....
