Occasionally, I'll go to a domestic violence call where the woman's the attacker or otherwise at fault. And, in the interest of Political Correctness, I'll end up locking up the man. (Welcome to Massachusetts!) And as I am booking my arrestee, I'll tell them your famous line that warns about the man called Doc, and the restaurant called Mom's. Those arrestees never come back....thanks, and Happy Birthday, dude....

Your short story, " a bottle of milk for mother", enkindled my interest in literary interpretation. Thank you. I have no idea, however, what you saw in Simon De Bouvier....Requiescat in pace.

Hail and farewell, Nelson..."gone on the arfy-darfy, never to return." You are more loved and honored in death than you ever were in life - the mark of a true artist! Fifty years after your best novels were published, much has changed, but much else has not. A new generation has discovered you and hears your message! From the Nelson Algren Memorial Committee, Chicago, IL (www.nelsonalgren.org)

"Never play cards with a man named Doc. Never eat at a restaurant named Mom's. And never sleep with a woman whose troubles are greater than your own." Great advice, pal. I hope wherever you are there is a deck of cards, a well-stocked bar and a typewriter. You should be glad you're not in Bucktown these days. You wouldn't like it.
