  1. Alex: Did you realize that C.Y. Lee is still alive and living with his son and daughter in the Fairfax area?

    Enjoyed your posts that started way back when you had your "APAs on TV" postings!

  2. I didn't know that. Many years ago I saw Lee at New York University. I sat near Dong Kingman Jr. whose father did the watercolor illustrations for the film adaptation of Flower Drum Song. Lee said he was working on his memoirs.

    Good to hear from someone who remembers APAs on TV.

    What are you doing now?

    Thanks again for visiting.
