Back in the day when there were daily duck and cover drills, when we practiced putting our school desks between us and thermo-nuclear distruction, there was a group of friends who called themselves, "The Royal Order Of The Purple Shaft." I was a charter member, along with John, Jerry, Frank, and Leo. We have all lost touch over the years. But a time warp ZAP! happened this week.
John's daughter Jane sent me an email, and I think at least part of the Royal Order shall ride the shaft again. Jane says she remembers meeting me at a radio station… specifically WNBC in New York. She is now a knock out graphics artist but she was just a little kid back then. I don't know if she has kids of her own, but I'll find out. Lots of girls these days don't want to have kids when they find out that it takes 9 months to download a kid.
