I Rest My Case

July 20, 1984, Jim Fixx, author of The Complete Book of Running, and son of Algier Hiss antagonist Calin Fixx, died at age 52 of a heart attack, after his daily run in Hardwick, Vermont. The moral of the story is, I suppose, only run when someone is chasing you. Happy L.A. Marathon! (Hope I---or you--- don't have to get to a SoCal emergency room tomorrow.) P.S. That is not a pic of dead Fixx but of someone else in the process of making a down payment on "the farm."

I once had tix to a Most Happy Fella revival with Art Lund at a theater in the S.F. Valley. But couldn't get there because Laurel Canyon was blocked by lemming runners. Obviously, I never got over it.
