RIP, Doc

Yaphet Kotto has died so I will share a story. Garrett and I were at a bar at Sea-Tac before a flight and a woman who we chatted with revealed she was once a celebrity personal assistant. I said that was neat and that I worked with a former celebrity personal assistant and asked who she worked for. She didn't want to say because I probably wouldn't know who they were. I bet her that I probably would, and was correct. It was Yaphet Kotto. I was a little offended by the implication that I hadn't seen classics like Alien or The Running Man, and I'll wonder forever if she ever even saw Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare.
