Today I got a package in the mail, well, I got three, but there was one that was a surprise.
Underneath the brown paper wrapper marked "better late than never" was Diners of Pennsylvania by Brian Butko and Kevin Patrick. Butko!
It was from an old friend that I rarely talk to now. That makes me sad. It was nice to get this in the mail, a piece of our shared past, the book we never wrote. I just flipped through it and I saw many familiar stainless steel facades and many more that will remain fantasy.
