I never knew this, but apparently Meador was in an issue of 'Weekly World News.' You know, the absurd tabloid that would have front page headlines about things like, Bat Boy, half bat, half boy.

Anyway, I guess about ten years ago Meador was on vacation and somehow met a wife of a family member of a friend (something like that) who worked for 'Weekly World News' and took his picture and added it to their photo file. A year later he's in the paper, under the headline TITANIC ICEBERG KILLS AGAIN! He's Martin Van Vechten, a Dutch man and one of the few survivors of a shipwreck caused by the possibly sentient iceberg that sunk the Titanic.

I'm not sure how I've known Meador for six or seven years and didn't learn about this earlier.

Thanks to Google Books you can read the article here.

They sent me a check, I think it was for $40. I probably would have paid them $40 for the privilege.
