    Robinson was an amazing man. I'd given anything to have met him. This may not surprise you, but there have been people at pipe shows (12 and counting) who were disappointed to find out I'm not really him. They thought I was a retired Robinson playing in pipe forums. I told a couple of people, "I'm glad I'm not, because if I was, I'd have died 44 years ago."

    Thanks for the heads-up! One of my favorite actors, the quintessential tough guy.
