Fame or lack there of

several years ago there was a patio sale at a condo on  O Farrell in the tenderloin. while browsing the items for sale I came across a hat that fit me for a reasonable price and during the palaver with the seller mentioned that it looked much like the Stetson that Larry Harvey was fond of at the time. the seller had no idea who Larry Harvey was and when i told them he was the founder of Burning Man they were equally uninformed. about a year later I spoke to Larry of this and he said that an interesting thing about fame was how intermittent it could be.  “If I walk out of my house and turn right, go to the corner market, they give me credit. if I walk out of the house and turn left, the corner market makes me pay cash.”
