Re: A.P. Giannini of the 60s

Interesting update on Mr Polich. I ran into him in late spring of '84 while cutting through the Giannini parking lot en route to the Ortega branch library. How he recognized me 24 years after I'd graduated and without ever having been in his PE class remains an unsolved mystery. He was a pleasant revelation 24 years later. The man whom I saw as a drill sergeant while at Giannini was an engaging guy whom I got to know better during 3 minutes in the school parking lot than during my 3 years at school.
