Startling Coincidence

Yesterday, I was reading an old issue of Medical Economics magazine, where I once worked.

I came upon the name Allyn Baum, who had co-edited that particular special issue.

Bad memory. I was editing a real estate issue, and suggested that he do a story about a physician who had a stream actually running through his house. When I asked Baum how the story was coming, he said it didn't pan out--there was no story.

A few months later... he published the story! He just wanted to hog credit for a good story!

Otherwise, he was a demanding, temperamental, unpleasant person.

So I looked him up on Google a few minutes ago.

He died yesterday, Jan. 10, 2009.
