In Is Public Input to the D & C a Dead Letter?, we named Byrna Weir a local Letter-to-the-Editor writing titan.
Today, in the Brighton-Pittsford Post, Byrna is perhaps at her most eloquent. (below).
I mostly knew Don from my mother Carol’s annual Christmas Eve parties where Don was a frequent guest. Sometimes Don would read a poem or two he had written or a painting he had done, often in the wee hours of the night in his garage studio.
And, Don — and Byrna — signed Carol’s “Christmas Log.”
