THE CONCISE COLUMBIA ENCYCLOPEDIA (Avon paperback, August 1983)


ah well...this is only the nearest-at-hand book, NOT THE CLOSEST TO MY HEART book...still, I was true to the rules...

BTW ("By the way"), I am really enjoying Jean Hegland's novel, INTO THE FOREST: I savor it!

-Chuck, you are supposed to elaborate on what you read.

-Oh.

-So elaborate.

-OK.

-Now.

-"Jane Byrne became the mayor of Chicago in one election and lost the mayorship sometime thereafter.
Now, Richard Daly is mayor; he is the son of Mayor Richard Daly, who was his father.
The first Richard Daly is known for his "mechanical invention": THE DALY MACHINE...which applies grease to 'old wheels'."

-Is someone else "tagged" now?

-Damned if I know.
