July Letters To and From the Editor

My family belonged to a “private” pool when I was growing up. There weren’t any other pools, from what I recall, and I suspect the pool operated like most any other in the rural suburbs. We paid dues. We swam. The “private” label was rumored to be a holdover from years prior that translated to: “no blacks.”

June Letters To and From the Editor

I’m becoming an old fogey. I feel my face scrunching up pretty much constantly. I’m now drinking coffee after dinner. The highlight of my day is listening to Vin Scully talk about the 1965 Dodgers. And my wife and I are starting to wonder: What the hell are we going to do when the kids move out of the house?
