Yesterday on the way to Coney Island we toured Brooklyn again to see where I was born, some old haunts, neighborhoods, Clarkson Ave. where I was brought up. Of course my favorite Chinese restaurant (711) is gone along with Ebingers, Bickfords, the bar where I had “Boilermakers at age 14, Garfields on Flatbush & Church (great hangout for teens on a Fri. nite), On the way to Sheepshead Bay where I used to fish off of the pier (a sailor borrowed the rod and accidentally threw it into the bay) we passed James Madison H.S. For some reason I got very nostalgic when I thought of the time while pitching for Stuyviesant Joe Bono, hit a home run off of me because I was flirting with his girlfriend in the stands. (I forgot to include that story in my book), then on to Coney via Brighton Beach where I used to play Handball with Sid Gordon, the ballplayer. (and that is IN the book)
Iran is going Nuclear, Syria is in flames, Europe has economic challenges, Children die in cities like Chicago, Washington, Detroit, Trenton. Our administration has one serious scandal after another. We have a health law that is an abomination yet the TV screens are covered with T & Z and 2 New York sex offenders and maybe worse running for office.
Is this Alice in Wonderland or what?
