    I didn't, but maybe Jim Beebe did.  How about it, Jim?  "Natty
Dominique"?  That names sounds somehow familiar.

    Chicago had and has so many great characters that we could write books.
Come to think of it, Studs Terkel probably already has.

    Jim: who was the black tailor who made uniforms for the name bands and
used to show up at the Blackstone on St. Partick's day with green bow ties
for all the guys in the band?

    You and Ingle should have plenty of stories.

hold forth!
