Mister Ron's Basement #918
Our Monday book serialization is George Ade's 1903 collection, 'In Babel -- Stories of Chicago.' The stories in this book range from the hysterically funny to the pathetically sad. Altogether, they paint a fascinating portrait of turn-of-the-last-century Chicago.
Today we listen in on an old Civil War veteran complaining about how Spanish-American War vets are treated in 'Mr. Lindsay on 'San Jewan.''
Time: approx seven minutes
