Jim Wood passes on.....

I was surprised that there wasn't more of a mention about the passing of Jim Wood, the former food critic of the Examiner, who passed away on Tuesday morning. I had the pleasure of sharing several meals with him and crossing paths with him professionally, over the years.
He brought Julia Child to Tu Lan back in 1985 - stepping over/around some of SF's denizens to gain entrance. An experience Julia wasn't to forget.
Here is a link to his obituary that has some interesting details about his life. He was from a kinder, gentler time.....
