Larry Fletcher Potts
Larry Fletcher Potts and I are different. Most of our differences do not matter. One does.
When Larry and I shot pool together in the evenings back in 1972, one might have noted some of these differences. I was a Navy lieutenant (junior grade); he was a Marine Corps first lieutenant. He was black; I am white. He spent most of his working hours in the air; I spent mine on the ground or on the water.
We also had things in common. Our hometowns were less than 100 miles apart; we were almost exactly the same age; we were both reasonably good pool players; and we were both in Vietnam.
