Spotted: A Seemingly Undead Mike Wallace

Elvis is still alive. Big Foot is real. And Mike Wallace isn’t dead.

We can dream, can’t we?

This morning at a Starbucks in Dupont Circle we couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw a gentleman reading today’s WaPo who just had to be the legendary TV journalist of 60 Minutes fame. Unfortunately, it was a mere look-a-like, wearing mid-calf socks, khaki shorts and what appears to be an amazonite ring. Wallace, after all, did leave us for that big newsroom in the sky back in April.
