Never heard of him either. But the world we currently live in makes even rational people scared.
Last Saturday night, we were watching "A Hard Days Night," on TCM. When suddenly, a car stopped at the bottom of our driveway, and a group of young guys ran from the car into our driveway ....... to shoot a basketball into our hoop. And then went up the street and did the same thing at the other hoops on the street! 5 seconds of terror and then we laughed. Yet, now we are prepared if it is something worse. Sad times.
