Hidden Talents


Jim Knight, a friend of mine from church, has always been a person of hidden talents. He's a recently retired airline pilot, flying mostly DC-10's for FedEx for many years. His chosen vocation has allowed him ample time to pursue a number of interests -- he spent months in the hurricane Katrina relief effort, and he's restored his share of cars and Cushman minibikes. Additionally, our congregation's music leader, a perfectionist of sorts, gives Jim this high praise about his singing abilities: "Jim has a habit of actually reading the music and actually singing it as it is written."

But I had no idea that he was also an author of an authoritative work on American gangsters of the 1930's. Sometimes it takes a newspaper man to bring these things out!

Blimey! You and your enlarged MG. If you like that sort of thing.
