Mister Ron's Basement #842
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, in a truly aggravatingly funny piece, the author solves the conundrum of finding the perfect Christmas present for the wee little ones in 'The Money Present.'
Time: approx eight minutes
