Considering we’re only 60 miles away FROM New York City, we’re pretty fortunate to have not lost power… but then again we ALWAYS go without lights during every thunderstorm.
Today on the Pocono Record: Bill Doolittle recalls the Blackout of 1965 in NYC. Pretty cool stuff, as he had to share his space with the staff of The New York Times.
I was only two or three months old during that Blackout… so I don’t remember much. I do remember Bushwick turning INTO a war-zone in 1977. That sucked.
If the name Bill Doolittle sounds familiar, yes, you may know his brother Jerome Doolittle of BAD ATTITUDES fame, who has become quite the blogging superstar as of late. Constantly referenced on such illuminati sites as Mykeru.Com and .:Chapel-Perilous:.. I guess because Jerome covered the Vietnam War first-hand, you can assume he knows a little something about war, journalism, and politics. Ya think?
I have the honor of working with Bill, and his daughter, Erin. Wonderful people & great journalists.
The Bob Dylan concert is in progress down the block. Too bad Carole has a “confidentiality clause” in her contract or I’d have some STORIES to tell YOU!
I’m sorry, did I say that out loud?
