So my claim to Richard Branson fame is that I saw him at the Western Inaugural Ball in 2009. Yes We Can.
Sir Richard was trying to grab the spotlight today for his plans to go deep-sea diving in his fancy new one-man diving machine. He's heading to the Puerto Rican Trench first, with plans to tackle the Mariana Trench in the near future.
I blogged about this last January. I wonder if anyone at the Marianas Visitors Authority has called Sir Richard yet?
