“Hot Wieners, A Love Story,” April
I have to tell you how much I enjoyed your reminiscences about Greek wiener restaurants. I admit to not liking wieners, but I do love the experience. Back in the mid ’60s as Providence College students, we would often end our nights at the System on Smith Street, where everyone would get theirs “all the way” and I’d make them wait for my two cheeseburgers with ketchup only. I am salivating after reading your article and I have only two options. I can drive to Warren center and eat at Rod’s or I can feel healthy, walk a mile and get some steps toward my 10,000. If I wait a few minutes, Rod will be cooking the wieners for lunch and I’ll smell them and think of, perhaps, 1968 but definitely of you. The only drawback is when I return, my wife will know I’ve been participating in my guilty pleasure.
“David Podsnap,” April
If there’s anyone I can imagine bringing energy to a dying area, it’s this guy!
One of the most energized performers, nicest guy and genuine person I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. Having booked this man band to my festival, I can’t wait to see him in his amazing adventure!
“No News is Bad News,” March
They’re so far left it has become comical. They are doomed unless they find some sort of balance.
