fifteen

“Andy Warhol was wrong. In the future, people won’t be famous for fifteen minutes. No, in the future, everyone will sit next to some famous for at least fifteen minutes. ….” from the book ‘RANT’ by Chuck Palahniuk.

This quote makes me think. Hmmmm there might be something to this… even though I did a stint on radio, it did not make me famous (although I was known as “the nearly famous…”) yet I have been around people who drew a bit more media attention:

I have ridden in an elevator with Jesse Jackson and his entourage.
I have escorted Gary Ridgeway .
I have interacted with Kenneth Bianchi.

“….in the future, everyone will sit next to some famous (or perhaps infamous) for at least fifteen minutes…”

Who would you cite as your fifteen minutes of NEXT TO fame?
