Twenty five years of Soledad


When Brad Raymond married Soledad O’Brien his Harvard schoolmate I left a message on his answering machine wishing him “cien anos de Soledad”

I thought of that just now going through the times noticing the obituary of Mercedes Berkshire 87 the widow of Nobel laureate Gabrielle Garcia Marquez .

I helped Brad coach the soccer team one year at mid Peninsula high school I was on a soccer trip having also done the marketing for the semi pro Palo Alto Firebirds whereas I was fired from the World Cup here because I refuse to sign the security documents run by saviors Ordway fingerprinting having lived here the previous 20 years I thought Rick replant the bureau chief should just except my word that I was not a terrorist . That part of my story was printed in the mercury by a Chinese American reporter who my dad and I sat next to when I think it was Peter who brought the spoke to commonwealth club
