Last night I watched the A&E Biography episode on Wally Amos, founder of Famous Amos. Show followed its usual predictable arc - man succeeds, destroys family, career hits a nadir, then revival. But as always the fact, the show dropped random nuggets of trivia that kept hooking me in, among them the fact that two of the initial investors in the cookie company were Helen Reddy and Marvin Gaye - could you get two more different singing styles? But then, Wally was the talent agent who signed Simon and Garfunkel. What a random path some lives take.
