"Huchy Kuchy At The Fair" -- And Other Stories
Thurs. Dec. 11, New York Deli, 7-8 p.m.

Ladies and gentlemen, gentlemen and ladies, roll up, roll up, to the New York Deli, tomorrow, Thursday night, and for one night only, where Harry Kollatz Jr., author of the action-packed Richmond In Ragtime: Socialists, Suffragists, Sex and Murder, will present diverting, entertaining and instructive selections.

He will be accompanied by the musical stylings of the Happy Lucky Combo and for educational purposes only, those in attendance will learn the origins of the "huchy kuchy" dance, as demonstrated by a special guest. This performance altered for life the perspective of civic muckraker Adon Yoder. All this and a rousing tribute to Eugene V. Debs. What better reasons to come out on this dreary damp evening?

The gloomy weather-or-not crowd is predicting rain for the evening, so pull on your galoshes, carry your umbrella, but come regardless for this evening of morals and mirth. History will never be the same.

P.S. For the members of the billion-eyed audience who've been impatient and wondering where their Blue Raccoon got off to, it's simple. Between selling the above volume, and the annual seasonal crush at the Other Network, the last thing I want to do when I get home is look at a computer screen. This makes me poor blogger material, I reckon.

Yet while nobody was looking, among my current assignments at the Other Network is a blog itself. So far, we've got sidewalk art, hawks eating squirrels and a dead black cat. Gripping stuff.
