I was the quiet bespectacled kid with the life-sized, cardboard cut-out of Chaka Khan in her bedroom in 1979. Decades later, I introduced myself to my adolescent crush, Chevy Chase with: “What are you doing here?” I’m an Aquarius with Leo rising and a Pisces moon. But don’t hold it against me. Since leaving the L.A. Times, I’ve had evil thoughts about Sam Zell. And I love animals.
