Finding Hope and Peter Robinson in the Food Court

 

Took in lunch with The Boss and Xerox at the local mall today when a young man and his mother sat down at the next table. He had on the most extraordinary tee shirt.

“Young man,” I said, “may I ask you where you got that shirt?” “We had them printed up for German Club at my high school,” he replied

Thirty years on and in today’s political climate, there’s a group of teenagers from Louisville* (OH) High School that embraces the message of freedom delivered long ago by President Reagan in West Berlin.

You find both hope and Peter Robinson in the damnedest places.

*Louisville (pronounced Lewis-ville) is in eastern Stark County in northeast Ohio and has a population just north of 9,000 souls. Go, Leopards!

    May we see more of these and fewer with Che Guevara on them!

    Or maybe a Che-style Peter Robinson shirt. Hmmm….

    What style of sweater draped over the shoulders goes best with a stylish beret?

    Funny how differently residents of a city with the same name in Kentucky pronounce their town’s name.

    The improbability of this event occurring is somewhat frightening. The odds of that happening are, to politely state it, extremely long.

    But not this Long.
