Mister Ron's Basement #1605

Our Saturday Night Special story is truly special today!

From The New York Weekly Magazine of July, 1796, we have discovered a piece by a writer who calls himself Tyranculus, concerning what was then becoming a vanishing custom, and putting the final kibosh on it.

The piece is called 'On the Three Cornered Hat.'

Time: approx five and a half minutes

There is a nifty interview with Mister Ron in issue #59 of iProng Magazine (soon to be renamed 'Beatweek') which can be downloaded as a free pdf file here.
