Looking through old photos, I came across this old clipping of a kids magic club from the 1950s. My aunt had saved it for more than 40 years. Originally, she probably thought I was the “star” of the photo. But in later years she realized that one of the kids pictured was a true star, a boy who had grown up to become a US Senator, Joe Lieberman.
There I was, standing next to Joe. Also pictured (standing next to me) is Phil Berger, who became a well-known New York Times sportswriter, an author of numerous books, including Mike Tyson’s biography.
