David Conrad is pretty well known here in the Burgh because he was born here, does/did theatre here, starred in “Relativity” a while back, lots of TV work, and now really getting into films. You may have seen him in “Wedding Crashers.”
Am I boring you? Sorry. Here’s why I asked. Check out this letter to the editor in today’s PG:
It’s not stealing
Good thing no Associated Press photographers were present when I and a couple New Yorkers, one of whom wore a uniform, broke into a shopping market four blocks away from the World Trade Center on Sept. 11 and dragged out 20 cases of water. We had entered and left with goods, the definition of looting.
All of us should be damn careful next time we use the L-word about some poor washed-out guy from New Orleans. If I had been down there, I would’ve taken a hell of a lot more than water — and smiled when they took the picture.
Why did I only take water from the store in Manhattan? It’s what the firemen asked for, that and cloth napkins to clean their eyes. When we offered food, they said they weren’t hungry.
I bet that’s him. Makes sense that he would have been in NYC as he does so much theatre, plus he still keeps a home in the Strip.
David? Call me, ya cutie!
And another thing. If I was famous like David Conrad, I wouldn’t leave my identity up to question. I would either have written, “When I was in NYC on September 11 filming a movie because I am incredibly hot and famous, I broke into . . .” or I would have signed it “THE David Conrad, Strip District.”
But that’s just me.
