Journalist Remembers the Day John Glenn’s Car Broke Down

Every Tuesday, veteran journalist and aspiring novelist Katharine Blossom Lowrie chronicles the offbeat side of Redondo Beach and environs for her local Patch site, under the column heading “Blossom Chronicles.” Today, her focus is 78-year-old retired fellow reporter Mary Ann Keating.

It’s a fun read, starting out with the recollection of how Jack Benny held Keating’s hand during an interview and moving on to some early 1960s Colorado Springs Gazette reminiscences involving Walt Disney and John Glenn (pictured):

“One Saturday afternoon, I got a call from a mechanic at one of the garages, and he was whispering, ‘John Glenn’s here! John Glenn’s here!’” she recalled.

Today, the Penske Media outlet plows forward with EXCLUSIVE details about some of the reasons why this 17-year-old loves to hang in Holmby Hills.
