Bad enough that the weather is so crappy here in East Lansing (when I am sure,
it is comfortable and steamy in Louisville); added to it, I am almost brought
to tears by Dennis Baron's account of his standing by the side of the field
during childhood games, unchosen by us All-American types.
First, if he had read an earlier message of mine, he would have taken heart
that we might have chosen him to play pigtail (behind the catcher) in our
Second, in spite of my obvious lower Midwestern/upper Southern roots, he
should know that I am really a Pekelnicky (an obviously Slavic loan name into
Hungarian) and not so thoroughly All-American as he might suspect. (What could
my daddy do? He left the comfort of southern Illinois coal-mining Hungarians
to open a paint and wallpaper business in southernIndiana.)Pekelnicky's Paint
Store? No way.
Sadly (with the vision of a tearful but well-washed Dennis B. standing by the
side of the field).
