... in New Orleans right now, waiting for my flight back to L.A. Guess who I’m staring at across the way?
He went through the security checkpoint just ahead of me, matter of fact. He hugged the TSA lady, and she was delighted.
Waiting at the gate now. Young white dude just went up and got Mr. Poitier’s autograph. Now a black woman’s posing for a picture with him. Neat.
3:46 p.m. (Central Time): Damn... now there’s a whole gang of white folks over there getting their picture took with Sidney Poitier. Looks like some kind of traveling youth group. Must be tough being famous.
