In Help Talker fill its empty hat and Talker’s experiment is an “incomplete success.” But it’s not too late., we beat the drums slowly for donations to defray Talker‘s yearly operating expenses.

As we have yet to monetize — no advertisements, no pay pal, no donate button — contributions have to be made in check or cash in stamped envelopes: more analog than digital.  The results were at first slow, but recently philanthropists have been filling the coffers, including well wishing holiday cards.  It’s not too late!

Recently, Talker‘s Foreign Correspondent, Dr, Bruce Howard Kay, made an exceedingly generous donation.  While Bruce has previously corresponded from Peru and Albania, currently we have stationed him in Maryland with his wife and two children.

In A 1997 trip to deep Peru retracing the Shining Path. we took an outstanding adventure of love and war.  In From Tirana with love. And a dash of Pristina. we toured Albania and Kosovo.

Young Bruce appeared in For you, Talker buys the D & C digital archives. And Noam Chomsky. Adolescent Bruce had an indispensable role in A ribbon cutting and the Pages of the Brighton Memorial Library

While political scientist Dr. Kay does not like being referred to as our “Bush guy,” in May 24th, 2005 when President Bush spent political capital in Greece. he provided a trenchant and contextualized explanation of the term “political capital.”

In Bruce’s thoughtful Holiday card, he says:

Consider opening a kickstarter account and figuring out how to lure in the cash w/fake news content and revisionist history of the Flower City.

My analog self had to look up kickstarterGood idea, Dr. Kay!

About The Author

dkramer3@naz.edu

Welcome to Talker of the Town! My name is David Kramer. I have a Ph.D in English and teach at Keuka College. I am a former and still active Fellow at the Nazareth College Center for Public History. Over the years, I have taught at Monroe Community College, the Rochester Institute of Technology and St. John Fisher College. I have published numerous Guest Essays, Letters, Book Reviews and Opinion pieces in The New York Times, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, the Buffalo News, the Rochester Patriot, the Providence Journal, the Providence Business News, the Brown Alumni Magazine, the New London Day, the Boston Herald, the Messenger Post Newspapers, the Wedge, the Empty Closet, and the CITY.  My poetry appears in The Criterion: An International Journal in English and Rundenalia and my academic writing in War, Literature and the Arts and Twentieth Century Literary Criticism. Starting in February 2013, I wrote for three Democratic and Chronicle  blogs, "Make City Schools Better," "Unite Rochester," and the "Editorial Board." When my tenure at the D & C  ended, I wanted to continue conversations first begun there. And start new ones.  So we created this new space, Talker of the Town, where all are are invited to join. I don’t like to say these posts are “mine.” Very few of them are the sole product of my sometimes overheated imagination. Instead, I call them partnerships and collaborations. Or as they say in education, “peer group work.” Talker of the Town might better be Talkers of the Town. The blog won’t thrive without your leads, text, pictures, ideas, facebook shares, tweets, comments and criticisms.
