Former NASA astronaut FRED HAISE came to the Cradle of Aviation Museum last week for a discussion and book signing about his autobiography ‘Never Panic Early: An Apollo 13 Astronaut’s Journey’ at the Cradle of Aviation. What a gifted, engaging speaker!

Thanks to the lively way Haise shared some dangerous times during his career – notably when the Apollo 13 spacecraft was damaged on its way to the Moon on April 13, 1970 – the time seemed to fly by fast enough to escape Earth’s gravity.

I’ve enjoyed seeing Fred Haise several times at the Cradle of Aviation Museum. As THOMAS RIEDY, a trustee of the museum, said shortly before the event, the Cradle is very lucky that Haise is so supportive, visiting so frequently over the years.

VIDEO: ‘Couple of Guys’ fundraiser Q&A…. Near the end of the fundraiser for ‘Couple of Guys,’ series creator DEBRA MARKOWITZ asked if I enjoyed the first two episodes screened this Monday night. Smiling, I simply said ‘Yes.’
There was no way I could begin to do justice right then to the funny and serious things that touched me about the story of divorced attorney RIchard Durant (SAL RENDINO) and heartthrob former rocker Jon Graham (LUKAS HASSEL) – two mature gay men finding each other and love.
