Saturday fun activity: Where IS this?

     At first I thought this might be unfair. An older man against a dark background. How could anyone figure out a location from that? Even King Dale. 
    But someone might be familiar. He isn't a famous man, but he has been in the press. And it's more of a thinking puzzle. In order to get the gears turning, though, I need to give a clue. Here it is: the man isn't real. 
    Well, he is real somewhere. But he wasn't really in front of me when I took his picture. Does that help? No? Good.
    Let the fun begin. You don't have to name the guy, just where I saw him, or an image of him. The winner gets one of my way-cool "Don't Give Up the Ship" flags, expressing a sentiment more necessary than ever as Donald Trump's America unfolds in day after I-can't-fucking-believe-this-is-happening day. Place your guesses below. Good luck.

    1. Well done. Send me your address, at, and I will send you your flag.

  2. This is off-topic, but I saw the documentary Obit at the Music Box last night, with a post-film Q & A moderated by your colleague Maureen O'Donnell. I thought you may have been there but didn't spot you. I'm sure if you haven't already seen it, you plan to.

  3. The man's name is Pinchas Gutter.

  4. Wow. Big ol' article in the Sun Times last week....

  5. I saw a clip of Mr. Gutter when he was being recorded. Necessary, powerful stuff. I fear, however, that time and deniers will allow too many to forget.
