Mister Ron's Basement #1626
Please excuse our skipping the last two Episodes of the Basement. Mister Ron has been recuperating from dental surgery.
Our Monday novel serialization is Stephen Leacock's 1912 masterpiece,'Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town.'
If you haven't yet, please do go back and start with Chapter One of this fabulous book! They're ALL worth listening to!
You'll find them in the Stephen Leacock Index below.
We are today presenting the next-to-last chapter of this book. In Chapter Eleven, 'The Candidacy of Mr. Smith' the workings of a successful 1912 Canadian election are presented, and if the politics seem familiar, it just shows that people don't really change at all.
As always, your comments are welcome! Mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Time: approx thirty and a half minutes
