A lonely Japanese man who amassed more than six tons of porn died when a huge pile of magazines fell on top of him.
And even more tragically, the man's body was only discovered six months later when the landlord entered the flat to find out why the rent had not been paid.
They were introduced by Lucy Casada, the co-owner of the restaurant along with her husband, Frank.
Despite his trimming, at the time of his death the collection weighed in at six metric tons (13,228 pounds).
Ronstadt and Jerry Brown first met sometime in 1971 at Lucy’s El Adobe, a Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles.
That, however, in the words of an earlier Ronstadt/Stone Poneys song, “Different Drum,” would not likely occur, as the song’s lyrics suggest: “You and I travel to the beat of a different drum / Oh, can’t you tell by the way I run / Ev’ry time you make eyes at me…” Still, there was an interesting decade of activity between this rock star and politician, made more interesting by the swirl of music and politics of those times. 1974, he ran for, and was elected governor of California at age 36, the youngest to do so in the state’s history.
What follows here is a look back at some of that history. His father, Edmund Gerald “Pat” Brown, was then District Attorney of San Francisco and later Governor of California for two terms (1959-1967). Brown followed Ronald Reagan in the Governor’s office, who previously held the post for two terms, 1967-1975.
He lived in an apartment, walked to work, and had his chauffeur drive him around in his 1974 Plymouth.
