Not to state the obvious — but this article ROCKS! Wonderfully engrossing and very nostalgic for those of us who lived through the era. I tend to agree with Barry Melton’s assessment that it was actually the end of an era….what do others who experienced it feel?

Great article but need to point out one omission – the original Bowser from Shanana who performed at WS is now teaching at Jewish Theological Seminary.
