Newark Public LibraryYes, I was in New Jersey. Yes, I was in New York. Yes, I was in Delaware and even Maryland. And yes, it was humid as hell. But I got a chance to explore Newark, NJ and do some research for my book “Newark.” Hey, it’s not so scary…

It’s frustrating and I’m getting ready to go to a posh dinner party where Steve Miller is cooking. I had to buy a rather elegant French wine–St. Emillion, my old-time favorite, back when I used to actually drink wine. Now, I couldn’t care less and would rather have a Vitamin Water any day. “Revive” in particular in all its pale purple splendor.
