‘A martyr for working people’: Tale of hero steelworker comes to life – I’ve worked with countless journalists over the years, but one of my all-time favorites is Sean Kirst of the Buffalo News. He comes to me with the most fascinating people and I love the way he crafts their stories.
Bonus points that they’re often oddly hard to research (who doesn’t like a challenge?). This one, for instance, seems so easy since I found his nephews, but I really had to work for it.
At any rate, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read this compelling profile of a forgotten hero – Casimer (aka Charles) Mazurek. Perfect time to resurrect his memory. 🙏
Bruce Springsteen accepts Ellis Island award with his mother & aunts – As Bruce Springsteen recently marked his 70th birthday, I thought it was a good time to take this charming look back at him paying tribute to his immigrant ancestors at Ellis Island (VIDEO). His mother and aunts are adorable! 🗽
And here’s a little something about his Irish roots.
