Last Five Minutes of Fame

Last Five Minutes of Fame LAST FIVE MINUTES OF FAME Abe Gurko It was 1973; I was short, fat, and four-eyed with no immediate hopes of having a life worth living.

He’d previously been elected to the board of the City College of San Francisco and thought he knew how to build the ground game to win in Oakland. He started gathering endorsements—from the state superinte...
