Mister Ron's Basement #1627

This week we will attempt to dig up some so-far-unread George Ade stories that are Worth Reading.

We begin with a tale from his 1899 book, 'Fables In Slang.' It has the pretty self-explanatory title of 'The Fable of the New York Person Who Gave the Stage Fright to Fostoria, Ohio.'

Time: approx five and a half minutes

John Kelly of The Washington Post has written a lively piece about the Basement. You can read it here.
