Re Christopher Glenn

by Clifford D. May

Tim, thanks for alerting me to Christopher Glenn’s retirement. I am of a certain age–indeed, in my youth I once had the privilege of working with Christopher Glenn.

We covered the visit of Pope John Paul II to Mexico in 1979. He was the veteran CBS radio correspondent who parachuted in for the event. I was the rookie Mexico City stringer.

I still remember riding with him in a car down the Reforma, Mexico City’s main drag, reading the banner headline in the local paper: “¡El Papa Viene!” The Pope is Coming!

I’d like to wish him the best, too. I’d like to buy him a few tequilas as well.
