The Chron has a Q&A this morning with Herb Caen's only son, Christopher Caen, 44, who is making a mark at the Citizen Group ad agency. One of the questions Sam Whiting put to him was: "When you were a kid, what did you want to be?"
A: When I was very young, I was at a birthday party. My mom was going around the table saying, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Kids were saying, "An astronaut," "a fireman," "a policeman." When she got to me, I said, "An Italian."
