"I want to meet the person responsible for the mandatory airline warnings not to tamper with smoke detectors in the bathroom. I have a pretty good feeling it was the 'just one drag" guy from the movie, 'Ghost.'"

"During my first visit to Ecuador about five years ago, I was leaving the opening reception of a conference. It was at a famous church and there were hundreds of people rushing to get out when it was over because it was so crowded and stuffy. A man bumped into me pretty hard, prompting me to say, 'Watch where you're going, buddy!' I soon realized it was the Prime Minister of the country."
