What the hell? I can understand if small local sites don't bother with those new GDPR laws but this is the LA Times! How long has it been?

“We were pretty rough at first,” 16-year-old Williams told Time, “everybody fighting for their own salad.”

 

Lolwut? I'm gonna have to start using that phrase from now on.

 

Very cool article! Only downside is it makes me feel like a lazy slob.

Very little in the article I didn’t already know (culled from the 1949 article I posted about a few years ago); the main attraction is getting quotes from the two brothers. That’s rare. So I’m thankful for that!

Nice article. I don't recall hearing from his brothers much before.

Very close family and they too are huge fans of JW.

My first reaction when I read the article! ("Wait, John Williams was a ladie's man?")

Me too!  Apparently he was a ladies man.

Yes. Heck, for a first grader boy to date a third grader girl in high school, you have to be!
