Out-Of-Control Conversation Safely Turned Back Onto Self

HARRISBURG, PA—A runaway conversation was successfully returned to its proper subject Saturday when 36-year-old Clark Hanneford regained control of a post-work chat session that had errantly strayed from the topic of him. “It was pretty scary for a second there,” the shaken-but-safe Hanneford said following the ordeal. “The talk was comfortably centered around me and my guitar playing, when out of nowhere Gary starts talking about his family.
