  1. I didn’t know that he was from Western PA.

    I’m reading about Aliquippa right now by S.L. Price called Playing Through The Whistle as a matter of fact.

    Pretty grizzled factory town…reminds me of Newburgh NY.

  2. He was a very generous man…

  3. “He was a very generous man…” Yes he was but there were always string attached.

  4. He had power.
