Deli Patron Serves Baloney
Mr. Black said that he was a Jewish Holocaust survivor, who changed his name when he entered the U.S. He also dished stories about well known Hollywood figures.
Fast forward to a few months ago, my brother, Danny who now lives in LA went to a lecture by John DF Black, who did write episodes for Star Trek. He said the man that we met some 30 years ago was not John Black but an impostor. He had done this many times and had irked the real Black. In 30 some years, we accepted his stories as the truth and many turned out to be. It provided context for the actors that he spoke about. In reality, we stopped in for lunch and was served a baloney sandwich.
