I ‘met’ Randy Kaplan about 2 years ago when he contacted me by e-mail asking me for a list of names and mailing addresses for possible popes — he having found me from my ‘popes-and-papacy’blog. We exchanged quite a few e-mails, some of them quite funny since Randy just couldn’t believe the mailing addresses for some of the papabili. Randy was quite successful in getting cardinals to cooperate. I was impressed. We keep in touch.
Yesterday he sent me these pictures along with this cute, pithy and very prescient message:
“Hi all. Here are a few pics from Nixon exhibit. Truly an honor to be a part of this baseball and the presidency exhibit. The exhibit included signed bats from four presidents and probably the next one as well – HRC
He is from New York, with good connections. He should know. Who am I to argue.
So this is the exhibition where his autographed baseball paraphernalia is on display.
Randy Kaplan is the Director of Government Affairs and Senior Lobbyist for LIBOR (and that is NOT the London-based interest rate) in West Babylon, NY.
