The Diary of a NobodySparrow has a routine morning at the hotel, and later has fried baloney with his breakfast. Today’s Diary. 

Breakfast wasn’t too bad…You don’t often see fried baloney on a menu, so I got that with my pretty OK biscuits and gravy and it was pretty tasty…Sharon the owner said she makes her own baloney which as near as I can tell is the first time I’ve had homemade baloney.

I’ve long been a fried baloney fan and you don’t see it too often outside of your own home…Offhand, the only other places I’ve seen it are at White Castle, on their breakfast menu, gloriously tucked inside a biscuit or bun, I forget, and at a minor league baseball stadium in Louisville, where the baloney was pretty thick, as I recall.

Criminals, Courtesans, and ConstablesFriends, my latest novel is now available, for $3.99 until later this week when the price goes up a couple of bucks. Criminals, Courtesans, and Constables is about a nice guy who runs high-class call girls in and out of 5-star suites and throne rooms, collects ransoms and runs from the constables. Hilarity ensues.

On This Date
In 1936 – Richard Hauptmann is executed in New Jersey’s electric chair for the murder of Charles Lindbergh, Jr., the son Charles Sr. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh. Though there were no reliable witnesses that put Hauptmann at the scene of the crime, nor were his fingerprints found anywhere, $14,000 of the $50,000 ransom was found at his house. The young boy was 20-months old at the time of his kidnapping in March 1932 and his body was found in May and it’s believed he died due to a blow to the head suffered during the abduction. 

In 1977 – The Montreal Canadiens defeat the Washington Capitals 2-1, becoming the first team in NHL history to win 60 games in a season. The Canadiens finish the year 60-8-12 and would later defeat the Boston Bruins in four games to win the Stanley Cup. Though the record of 60 wins was eclipsed by the Detroit Red Wings with 62 wins in 1995-96, their 132 points is still the NHL record. 

In 1961 – The Marcels are at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for the first of three consecutive weeks with Blue Moon. Written in 1934 by the Broadway songwriting team of Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart, it had previously charted twice in 1949 when Billy Eckstine and Mel Torme each had Top 20 hits with it. The Marcels’ version went to #1 in five other countries, including Great Britain, and was also at the top of Billboard’s soul chart for the first of two weeks. 

The real struggle is with a small professional elite totally split off from the nation, pursuing wealth through wars that they invent and justify and resonate for others to die in.
