I grew up in Austin, and actually got to meet the guy a few times. He was actually pretty cool. Austin will be a bit less weird, now.

Thanks for posting this.

Only got to meet him once, but he made a definite impression! Leslie will definitely be missed.

The last time I met him, I was waiting for the bus. I asked if he would sign my HS yearbook. To my surprise and amusement, I noticed that he was wearing the same hair accessories I had worn to prom, only in a different color. You can't forget something like that!
