  1. Larry Kosberg, Brentwood Science Magnet with my 6th grad teacher in 1982.

    Do you know where he is now?

    1. Hi Jace – you were a year behind me at Brentwood. I exchanged a couple emails with Larry several years ago but the correspondence dropped off. He was still living in Los Angeles, but that’s about all I know.
