Mister Ron's Basement #1414
This week we are spotlighting James M. Bailey, the Danbury Newsman, with selections from his 1877 book, 'They All Do It.'
Today we hear how an old Editor manages to cross the street in 'An Accommodating Reporter.'
We also have a short 1896 preface by cartoonist Walt MacDougall. To read the entire piece, 'The National Joke' drop in to John Adcock's fun blog at http://john-adcock.blogspot.com/2009/08/national-joke_13.html .
Time: approx nine minutes
