SpechtBop:

Only 1 (one) can be the best is an Olympic tradition.  No one better typified that than Joe Specht.

He was my teacher at Lycoming College in 1975.  My lecture-hall English Lit class met twice a week and once a week in a smaller group lead by Joe, the intern.  I was a freshman and he was a senior.  He was serious and funny at the same time. He had curly hair and a mustache any walrus would be proud of.  He wore the best shirts and always had a quip about a recent movie or current music he enjoyed.  People gravitated toward him because he was easy to like.  Even on a Friday, no one missed his class.

We had an odd friendship I started through a few common friends.  In 2000, I visited Joe and Ani in Vermont and admired their “million dollar bathroom”- you know, the one with the view of heaven and the woods that surround it.   Upon departure, I was jealous.

To my way of thinking, Joe Specht did what he set out to do and that’s an admirable trait.

In compliance with Olympic tradition, Joe Specht deserves a gold medal because only one can be the best.

Bridgeport, CT. as Amazon’s HQ2

Here’s Three Reasons Bridgeport is optimum for Amazon’s new HQ2:

Location. Bridgeport meets all the listed criteria.

Room to build.  Tracts of available land and plenty more nearby. Transit options include land, sea, rail and airport.  Mega-warehousing from Steelpointe’s highway-side facilities provide swift commodity movement.

“Special situations” include many local universities. skilled labor force, quality of life, proximity to everything worthwhile and governments anxious to show their resolve.

 

Only 1 Can Be The Best.

Happy Fathers Day

Dad,

50 years ago, my Dad took his family to Expo ’67 in Montreal. We towed a trailer (the Scotty) that we all slept in. We were intentional suburban nomads having the time of our lives.

Other things my Dad did for me :

He took me to the circus…He hired a pilot and we flew by helicopter through the New York City skyline where I saw skyscrapers up close and  chunks of ice floating in the Hudson river…He took me to the hospital where they announced his name over the PA system and he left in the cafeteria where he told the lady I could have anything I wanted!

Happy Fathers Day

Paul and Dot
