Letters

Word on the Street

What are your thoughts about this year’s start of the holiday shopping season? “[There is] lots of hustle and bustle but it’s helping our economy. [It’s] great to see the amount of sales rising during this economy. It’s allowing for more jobs.� Annette Slattery, 12th and Wolf streets

“I went out for breakfast and was out all day. The Deptford Mall was jamming with great sales. I topped the day off by buying a miniature live tree.� Stephanie Jones, 13th and Porter streets

“It always starts too early. The whole Black Friday craze is ridiculous.� David Ansill, 11th and Daly streets

The big sleep To the Editor: Once again Mayor Michael Nutter is slow in resolving an issue — Occupy Philly. He reacts rather than acts. As a result, we face graffiti, rape allegations, gunshots, feces, human street barricades, inconvenience and a large bill. The mayor, however, is quick to assess fines on citizens for illegal parking, snow removal, early trash bag curbing, not cutting the grass and the removal of so-called dead trees. He also cut funds for the police and fire departments. I called 311 about replacing an alley light bulb and was told there is no funding to replace light bulbs. Despite all of this, the mayor has allowed Occupy Philly to run as a $500,000 city debt, for which the overtaxed citizens of Philadelphia will have to pay. Wake up Mayor Nutter, you are in a deep, deep sleep. Carlo Gonnella South Philadelphia

“I think these holidays are about family and helping those that are in need. If you feel forced to spend the money you don’t have, then it takes away the spirit of what Christmas is about.� Tom Saad, 18th and Jackson streets Interviews photos by Greg Bezanis

Editor’s note: The City vacated Dilworth Plaza of its occupiers early yesterday. Police made 52 arrests.

Still on her feet To the Editor: I am writing this letter with the hope that the person who stole Jaime Pannone’s locked bicycle and helmet near the Philly Marathon start site will read this. I call my daughter Jaime the Mother Teresa of Philadelphia because her humanitarianism touches the lives of young and old throughout this city every day. In addition to working a full-time job, Jaime volunteers hundreds of hours a year to Philadelphia Reads, Back on My Feet, Neighborhood Bike Works and Musicians on Call. In fact, the donations Jaime raised for her completion of the Philadelphia Marathon she is generously donating to Back on My Feet. When she told me her bike and helmet were stolen, Jaime, with her ever positive attitude, knew she needed to move forward and not dwell on this theft. To the person who stole my daughter’s bike and helmet, I hope you can see in this letter that Jaime will continue to spend her life helping others to be happy, to move ahead in their lives and not to succumb to negativity. I hope that you find it in your

heart to make changes in your life to also move ahead and learn from your mistake. You stole Jaime’s stuff, but you didn’t steal her spirit. Anne Pannone South Philadelphia

An empty feeling To the Editor: I hate, really hate, memories. Nostalgia leaves me in a crumbled mess. Listening to old songs can set me off to tears and unbelievable melancholia. The worse part is that it seems the older I get, the further into my past I go and while some of it is truly quite beautiful — even reverent, it is all gone now, along with all who were part of those times. My holiday gatherings now consist of me and my two dogs who will soon become only memories of which I will further hate. I remember a few Christmas Eves ago walking along Jackson Street. The blinds were open and I could see the families rejoicing inside their homes. I felt the love in each of those houses. At the same time it was one of the saddest times of my life and felt the full brunt of absolute emptiness.

Comment at www.southphillyreview.com/opinion

I am really an upbeat and fun-loving kind of man, but at the same time, I seem to be cursed with an unusual amount of sentiment. I love people and all of my life, I’ve been used to being around hundreds of them, so now it makes it a bit tough having no one, especially when I come home to the emptiness that replaced a house always full of family and friends. I just had to unburden myself and nothing I have in the past dwelled on such morbidity, but then again age has its leeways and you would be surprised what I now can get away with that was impossible not so long ago. But in any case, may I wish to all a truly warm and love-filled holiday, Hang on to and treasure loved ones with all of your might. Don’t take family or friends for granted. Realize and understand that one day — all of it will become memories. Frank Cavallaro South Philadelphia Editor’s note: The Review would like to offer its condolences to Frank as his 12-year-old dog Cody passed away at 12:25 p.m. Monday.

Bullet strikes bowler Two men allegedly responsible for wounding a man inside a Newbold/Point Breeze bowling alley have been arrested. By Amanda L. Snyder Review Managing Editor

W

hile the motive was unclear at press time, police have a Point Breeze and a West Oak Lane man in custody and are actively pursuing three other suspects responsible for a bowling-lane shooting. Employees at PEP Bowl, 1200 S. Broad St., did not allow the five men to enter the bowling alley since there was a private party using the lanes at 12:30 a.m. Sunday, Gregorio Tanya Little of the PoChambers lice Public Affairs Unit said. Two of the men trying to gain access supposedly began to argue with one of the men in the party when Gregorio Chambers and Ikeem Johnson from the former group allegedly pulled out Ikeem guns and fired toward Johnson the bowlers. A 21-yearold was wounded and fell to the ground into a lane. One of the shooters allegedly stood over the man and fired again before he fled with the rest of the group. The wounded man was transported to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in critical condition, Little said. It was unclear what injuries he had sustained. Police spotted a trio that matched the shooters’ descriptions on the 1400 block of Wharton Street, Little said. Chambers, 17, of the 7100 block of Uber Street, and Johnson, 24, of the 1400 block of South 20th Street, were identified from the group and arrested. Both were charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, possession of an instrument of crime, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person. Chambers also was charged with conspiracy to commit murder while Johnson also was charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated assault.

Relationship spat A West Philly woman allegedly plowed down her boyfriend with his car in Point

Breeze Sunday. Keisha Jones, 30, of the 5300 block of Kershaw Street, and her 28-year-old boyfriend Tyrone Taylor, of the same location, are believed to have been arguing inside his 2002 Acura at 1:52 a.m. when Taylor supposedly stopped and exited the automobile Keisha Jones on the 2400 block of Morris Street, according to the Public Affairs Unit. He began to walk away when Jones allegedly slid into the driver’s seat and drove onto the sidewalk pinning Taylor between the car and a building. When police arrived on the scene, Taylor was pronounced dead and Jones was arrested. She was charged with murder, involuntary manslaughter, homicide by a vehicle, accidents involving death or personal injury and possession of an instrument of crime.

Businessman gunned down A corner-store owner was shot multiple times after leaving his business last week. Rolando Lugo-Almonte, 23, of the 4200 Claridge Street, exited Peralta Food Market, 1429 Wharton St., at 8:46 p.m. Nov. 23, Christine O’Brien of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. He walked to his vehicle that was parked on the 1300 block of South 15th Street and as he tried to enter, two men approached him with one shooting the businessman multiple times striking him in the chest and abdomen. The North Philly resident was transported to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and pronounced dead at 10:20 p.m. The motive was unknown, as were the suspects, at press time. To report information, call Homicide Division at 215-686-3334 or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Holiday gunfire A man wounded in Dickinson Narrows on Thanksgiving attempted to drive himself to the hospital, but only made it nine blocks. A bullet struck a 22-year-old’s left buttock at Fifth and Wharton streets at 3:53


Police Report p.m. Nov. 24, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Police responded to the area and located the man on the 500 block of South Street. He had attempted to drive himself to Jefferson in his brother’s 2006 Chevy Uplander, but only made it two-thirds of the way there when he pulled over at Fifth and South. A medic then transported him the rest of the way in stable condition, Tolliver said. The motive was unknown and police did provide the suspects’ descriptions. To report information, call South Detectives’ tip line at 215-685-1635 or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Unsettled shooting

Pickpocket knockout A man was robbed while unconscious in South of South early Monday. The 33-year-old was strolling along the 1400 block of Carpenter Street when a man walked toward him and said, “give me what’s in your pockets,” Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The man declined to oblige, so the offender punched him in the face, and the victim lost consciousness. When he awoke, his iPhone was gone. The injured man went to HUP for treatment of his injuries that included lacerations to his forehead, a broken nose and concussion. The suspect was described as black, 5-foot-10, thin and wearing a black button-down shirt and dark-colored pants.

A teen was struck by gunfire in Queen Village Monday evening. The 18-year-old was standing in the Settlement Music School parking lot, 401-43 Christian St., when bullets started flying, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. Police responded to the area for reported gunshots when a group of people flagged down a patrol car at Fourth and Christian streets where the teen was bleeding profusely from a wound to his right leg, Tolliver said. Police transported him to Jefferson in stable condition. Detectives collected ballistics evidence at the scene. To report information, call South Detectives’ tip line at 215-685-1635 or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

A Passyunk Square business was burglarized consecutive Mondays with the damage totaling more than $64,000.

A Whitman clothing store was robbed Saturday. A man walked into Dots, 330 W. Oregon Ave., at 8:53 p.m. Nov. 26 and told a 26-year-old sales clerk that his wife had left a bag at the store, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The woman went behind the counter, but there were not any bags being held for anyone. The man put his hand in his pocket and said, “this is a stickup” and demanded $10s and $20s from both cash registers. As the employee gathered the cash, the man said, “hurry up or I’ll blow your … brains out right here,” Tolliver said. She handed him $800 and he fled through the parking lot and west on Oregon. The thief was described as white, in his early 30s, 5-foot-10 to 6 foot, 175 pounds, medium build, clean shaven and wearing a dark blue jacket with a gray hoody underneath, baggy blue jeans and a dark blue cap.

LATONA HOUSE continued from page 1 manity Philadelphia; and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. The collaborating groups dedicated the residence with asthma-healthy features and wheelchair accessibility to the family Nov. 12. Located on the 2200 block of Latona Street, the house features hardwood floors, organic compound paint, blinds and advanced framing techniques. All of these factors help to decrease the amount of pollen, dander and other allergens in the dwelling, lower the amount of pollutants that can enter the house and make for easier cleaning. “This house was built to help my daughter,” Johnson said of 18-year-old Tatiana Henry, who, along with asthma, has physical limitations and a cognitive impairment. “It has taken a huge amount of stress off me and has made a big impact on our lives.” Johnson; her daughter; brother, Michael Johnson; and husband, Ricardo Henry, have lived in a Point Breeze rowhome with roof and water damage, moldy carpets, poor electrical wiring and cracked walls. The home’s bathroom and Tatiana’s bedroom were located on the second floor; therefore, Johnson had to carry her up and down the stairs multiple times a day. Tatiana’s room and a bathroom now are conveniently located on the ground floor of their new adobe — that the family is making settlement on next week — along with the kitchen, dining and living rooms. Three smaller bedrooms and an additional bathroom are located upstairs. Now that the new house has been completed, the family is working on getting Tatiana a motorized wheelchair. “She’s going to love her new wheelchair,” Johnson said. “But it’s going to tire me out. I can just imagine her whizzing up and down the street with me running after her.” JOHNSON’S NEW RESIDENCE was the second of four to be built and dedicated as part of the Build Smart program with the first in Detroit in July. A Los Angeles dwelling followed Nov. 15 and the final home is scheduled for this month outside of Atlanta. Locally the home is one of four on the block that the City’s Redevelopment Authority earmarked for Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia, Habitat’s Director of Development and Communications Corinne O’Connell said. Tamika Henry and her two children, Jakeen and Nakeem, will receive their new home next door to Johnson’s Dec 16, along with two other yetto-be-determined families as two homes across the street wrap up construction next month. The organization purchased the former

vacant spot where Johnson’s house was built in January and began construction in March with funding from the City’s Office of Housing and Community Development and Merck, O’Connell said. “This new house will help the Johnsons in many ways,” O’Connell said. “Only 30 percent of their income will go to pay for the house, which gives them more options for health care, childcare and putting food on the table. Also, the quality of life for both Tatiana and her mother will be improved dramatically.” The money Habitat receives from the family will be used to build more houses for those who meet the group’s criteria — including the ability to pay the mortgage, 350 hours of sweat-equity and need, such as enduring overcrowding, slum conditions or paying too much for rent. The completion of the sweat-equity, which includes time at Habitat construction sites and in the classroom learning about home ownership and financial planning, enables the family to benefit from a zero-interest mortgage. “So then when they get to the settlement table, they know what they are signing,” O’Connell said of sweat-equity. “They are the most empowered homeowners.” The Build Smart program was created to bring awareness to people who have asth-

ma and show them that they don’t have to live in an environment that triggers their symptoms, Oosterhouse said. “What was cool about the program was as a builder, I saw that there were a lot of things people took for granted and didn’t fully understand about improving the quality of their everyday lives,” the host of “Carter Can” and “Red Hot and Green” said. “Take, for example, your washing machine. Some washers go to a high enough temperature to kill dust mites and other allergens, whereas some don’t. You need a washer that not only gets the grass stains out but does the job and kills all of the dust mites.” The asthma-friendly accommodations include building techniques, materials and ventilation systems based on the foundation’s asthma- and allergy-friendly certification program. The foundation ranks Philadelphia as the ninth most-challenging city for those dealing with asthma while one in 15 Philadelphians suffers from asthma, Dr. Reynold Panettieri, an asthma researcher and University of Pennsylvania professor, said. “Your indoor environment can trigger the disease and make patients go to the emergency room,” Panettieri said. “The Build Smart, Breathe Easier program looks at ways to get rid of these triggers. Less trig-

gers mean less flare-ups of asthma and less utilization of high dose drugs, which have a lot of side effects. This helps to actively empower the patient and improve their asthma care.” For those who suffer from the chronic lung disease, which results in attacks when air passages become inflamed, Panettieri advised reducing its onset with home improvements such as hard-surfacefloor installation. “Carpet can hold dust, dander, cigarette smoke and other allergens whereas hardwood floors and tile are easier to maintain,” Panettieri said. “You can also decrease your exposure to high-power fragrances, eliminate cat dander in the bedroom, and clean your heating and cooling filters every three months.” For Johnson and her family, such measures will improve the quality of life in their new home. “My daughter likes the house a lot,” Johnson said. “And since I don’t have to lift her anymore, it’s making my body feel better.” SPR Review Managing Editor Amanda L.

FILITALIA continued from page 1 al, 1834 E. Passyunk Ave., are tending to families’ dearth of delight by running their sixth annual Christmas Seals Program. “We began as a pilot study with the intent to help needy families,” Nestico, of the 3100 block of South 19th Street, said from his cardiology office, 1809-13 Oregon Ave.. The medical professional founded Filitalia, which means “Love for Italy,” in 1987 to preserve and advance his homeland’s customs, heritage and language globally. The South Philadelphia Chapter, one of 21 bodies operating in five countries, initiated the outreach in 2006 by helping eight underprivileged households. Its tally has swelled to about 300 clans, with last year’s endeavors assisting 86 families and their 126 children. Based within East Passyunk Crossing, Filitalia receives the names of struggling locals from numerous churches, with Annunciation BVM, 1511 S. 10th St.; St. Gabriel, 2917 Dickinson St.; St. Nicholas of Tolentine, 1718 S. Ninth St.; St. Thomas Aquinas, 1719 Morris St.; and Stella Maris, 814 Bigler St., providing this year’s lists. “We had calls in September that expressed communities’ needs,” Maria DiDonato, a Nestico employee and Filitalia’s humanitarian chairman and board of directors’ treasurer, said of spiritual sites’ seeking to make the holiest time of year not seem wholly miserable. The resident of the 2600 block of Dudley Street oversees 14 committee members, most younger than 30. Their ages and solid financial status make Filitalia’s distribution day especially difficult, as the recipients’ destitute identity always brings tears.

“I have to tell them to keep it together,” DiDonato said of her assistants. The droplets match the overhead discharge, as inclement weather typically accompanies the center’s event. “The reason we have horrendous weather is that when you do things like this, not only the community but also the sky is crying,” Nestico said. Patients laud doctors for their bedside manner, yet Nestico, a clinical professor of medicine with Drexel University’s College of Medicine at Center City’s Hahnemann University, wants only for people to see his actions as proof of his allegiance to Filitalia’s motto, “Humility, Justice and Honesty.” “My ultimate joy comes from having the young participate and community members donate,” he said. In its five years, the committee, including Marco Buffetta, of 18th Street and Oregon Avenue, has enjoyed success in allaying emotional woes and through ShopRite, 2301 W. Oregon Ave., has met physical needs with $50 and $100 gift cards. The store’s participation touches DiDonato, who recently read of the increasing cost of food and shortages at food banks. “It can be tough for people to accept charity, though,” she said. “Our distribution is happy and sad. The day is a humbling experience.” Filitalia confers the endowments onsite to either church figures or the residents. Most of the beneficiaries are strangers to the center, yet the human condition inspires sympathy regardless of familiarity. “Many of the people have nothing,” DiDonato said. Her mindset has led Filitalia to ask for new and unwrapped clothes and toys and monetary donations. It gave 10 toys to each

child last year and would like to match or top that amount. “We make no specifications,” Buffetta, whose mother Rosetta Miriello is another Nestico employee and Filitalia’s first vice president, said of the playthings that will go to children ages 1 to 10. “We will be grateful for whatever we receive.” NESTICO’S WAITING ROOM is acting as a mini Santa’s workshop in preparation for the 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. distribution Dec. 11, as goods — collected weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. — are waiting for company and eventual smiles from excited youngsters. With 10 days left until the gadgets find new owners, DiDonato is hoping the space becomes so clogged that transportation to the Filitalia office will have to occur sooner. “We always need to give back,” she said of sharing one’s blessings with neighbors. Its name reveals amore for Italy, but Filitalia could just as easily be dubbed “Filpersone,” love for people, as it has spent the last 24 years revealing an attraction to strengthening lives. Educational activities include granting 19 scholarships and offering Italian lessons. Cultural pride comes through participation in the Columbus Day Parade and Aug. 15’s Ferragosto Block Party, a celebration of the vacation season. Food and wine tasting events delight connoisseurs annually, and art and music celebrations discuss Italian contributions to civilization. April’s Franco Ceraso Foosball Tournament and September’s Giovanni Monterosso Bocce Tournament show off athletic instincts, and citizenship, education and leadership and humanitarian awards honor outstanding individuals. Proud of their heritage and its emphasis on Christmas, DiDonato and Nestico have

Grays Ferry resident received a new kidney from his fiancée last month, and now family and friends are helping cover the medical expenses. Doctors had told Paul Brown, of the 1300 block of South Hollywood Street, that his kidneys were no longer functioning and that he needed dialysis. His wife-to-be Ebony found out she was a perfect match and donated one of her kidneys Nov. 15. Their families, along with Brown’s best friend, Demetrius Moore, are holding a fundraiser 4 to 9 p.m. Dec. 3 at Five Points Cocktail Lounge, 4091 Ford Road. Tickets are $12 at the door. “They will be out of work for two months and bills don’t stop,” Moore said, “and also Christmas is around the corner and they have a 3-year-old little girl, Sadie Brown, whom they adore.” SPR

enjoyed showing their generosity to area inhabitants. Their roles always warm their hearts but possess a tinge of gloom. “I have joy and sadness,” DiDonato said of encountering the families. “We are helping them for one day, but what happens to them the other 364?” She has received reinforcement for her actions from St. Nicholas’s pastor, Rev. Nick Martorano, who has told her she is answering her calling no matter her conflict. “That has been a big help,” she said. She and Nestico are hoping for contributions to multiply this weekend, with the two stating an extreme need for coats. Last year ranks as their most successful and, aware of the increased need for compassion, they hope to accumulate enough presents and donations to brighten 100 families. Pennsylvania oversees seven Filitalia chapters, so Nestico, the overall president, yearns to make this month a memorable one for the Keystone State. He and DiDonato are looking for big dividends from an in-the-works fundraiser at Chickie’s and Pete’s, 1526 Packer Ave. Though Nestico aspires to have Filitalia touch the world each day, he knows the Christmas season presents the best chance to remind everyone of the commonalities of the human race, namely, the needs to feel loved and secure. His father, Aurelio Nestico, passed away Nov. 17, so Nestico and DiDonato have dedicated this year’s drive to his memory, with DiDonato prepared to make Christmas synonymous with rejuvenation. “We cannot be saviors,” she said, “but we can at least be encouraging.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Joseph Myers at jmyers@ southphillyreview.com or ext. 124.

16 SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW I December 1, 2011

A South Street resident founded an opera company in Philadelphia that is redefining the genre for the 21st century. By Jess Fuerst Review Contributor

A

ndrew M. Kurtz began thinking there was more to traditional opera more than a decade ago. “Just me. It was just me when I started,” Kurtz, the Center City Opera Theater founder, said of his company’s 1999 debut. “It took lots of organization and a lot of hard work — a real vision and very long days. And we’re still a young company; I consider us a very young company in terms of other institutions in Philadelphia that have been around for dozens of years.” Kurtz, who makes his home at 11th and South streets, is the general and artistic director of the business that focuses on developing new works, artists and audiences for opera. Its template has continued to evolve in an ever-changing process to enrich the artistic development of the work as well as enlighten the audience as to the creative process. “We are a lab for new work, a leader in the field for new work, which is very Philadelphia,” Kurtz, 44, said. “Philadelphia is a hub of energy for creativity and I think that there are a lot of companies in the theatrical world focusing on a lot of cutting-edge work.” In that vein, Kurtz and his company have about six productions in the works. Part of the innovative process that began in 2007 is the open-to-the-public seminars. “We always did the workshops. What was new was the idea that we would open up the creative decision-making process to the public because usually the work is developed behind closed doors. We were especially trying to change that,” he said.


Lifestyles The open workshops — the next of which is scheduled for Jan. 14 — allow people to come to see a work in progress and participate in feedback sessions following the show. “We learn a lot from the feedback from the people that come to see it,” the conductor said. “It’s not just a passive type of situation, these workshops present it and a feedback session about it directly follows from the attendees.” For the upcoming season, the founder is particularly excited about the June world premiere of “Slaying the Dragon,” which explores the relationship between the Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan — the highest ranking Klansman in a given state — and a local rabbi. “It’s about how a community responds to hatred. About how two individual men’s journeys collide,” Kurtz said. “Can you forgive evil and how does the community, who has been victimized through bombings and swastikas and violent death threats, how does that community respond to an offer of peace?” KURTZ ATTENDED CENTRAL High School before going to Charlottesville, Va. for undergraduate studies. “When I went to the University of Vir-

ginia I had no intention of becoming a professional musician. I chose that school in particular because I was interested in international law. I was prelaw, initially,” he said. “I went in with an intention of coming out a lawyer and instead came out a conductor.” The transformation from budding attorney to conductor was not miraculous, but instead a combination of a lifelong love of music and focused intensity. “I started conducting in college. I had studied music my entire life. I was just always interested in it and as a violin player, I played in a lot of orchestras,” Kurtz, who carried more than 20 credits per semester in order to get both a bachelor’s and master’s in music history in four years, said. “I was able to put [that intense program] together. It was not a normal program.” After graduating in 1989, Kurtz went on to complete doctorate work at The Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, during which time he also held jobs such as the assistant conductor of the now-defunct Pennsylvania Opera Theater. “I worked in a lot of places,” he said. “I had a home in Baltimore and a home in Philadelphia from ’92. Then Pennsylvania

Opera Theater folded and I had gotten a job in Florida, so I started commuting to Florida and spending part of the year there.” This coastal commute turned into a 17year ritual that continues to this day, as Kurtz is still the conductor for the orchestra he began in Fort Myers, Fla., named the Gulf Coast Symphony. Though he splits his time among many projects, his heart still resides most often just east of Broad Street, where he founded the Center City Opera Theater. “I had a passion for opera and a passion for new work — creating new work, developing new work. It had been nearly seven years since the demise of the other company I worked for and I felt there was a vacuum in Philadelphia and I had an opportunity.” In the beginning, Kurtz focused on traditional works, always intending to move into more “cutting-edge” ventures for the opera community when he got his legs under him. “We needed to wait until the infrastructure was in place. It was how it needed to happen,” he said. “We opened up the process now, but that was after we became experts about what needed to be done and how to run it. There was a learning curve. We are doing something that’s not really

done by very many people.” Other out-of-the-box offerings from the company include after-hour arias, which have the young members of the troupe performing drinking songs with patrons at local watering holes as well as Opera 4D, which features the group putting on a show in public spaces such as the Comcast Center. Kurtz is also the tour conductor for the “Cantors: A Faith in Song,” featuring three of the world’s leading cantors, Alberto Mizrahi, Naftali Herstik and Benzion Miller. This commitment takes him around the world, but with his many hats and long hours, he makes sure to take some time and enjoy the offerings close to home as well. “I think Philadelphia has a lot to offer. It’s a great environment and I love walking. I walk to the Italian Market and to shopping — you know you don’t get that out in the suburbs. It’s manicured lawns and driveways everywhere,” Kurtz, who has been on South Street for five years, said. “It’s much more diverse also. There is a richness of diversity [in South Philly].” SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/news/lifestyles.

Cardella

By Tom Cardella Columnist

In November Here’ s what we found out in November:

P

izza is a vegetable, according to government guidelines. School cafeterias, in good conscience, may serve up frozen pizza to your kids. Since the government encourages five servings of vegetables a day, I’ll feel better now when I scarf down five slices of pizza (burp) ... It’s not bad enough some of you have gotten nostalgic for George W. Bush. Even worse, we are getting nostalgic for Hosni Mubarak, the deposed dictator of Egypt. We are scared we can’t control who winds up running Egypt. We are all for letting the people decide as long as they decide on the leadership we like. It’s not like the good old days when we could call upon the CIA to install a friendly puppet government. But freedom isn’t freedom if you ain’t free, is it, Bobby McGee? ... So Joe Pa isn’t a saint. Remember that biblical admonition against having false idols? And that’s the last time I’ll be quoting the Bible again for quite awhile ... No, the Occupy folks aren’t going to change the world, not even Philly, but it doesn’t mean their hearts aren’t in the right place. But then again, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. The road to hell being that $18 million bill handed to the cities for police overtime and cleanup services. I guess First Amendment rights, like freedom, ain’t free... Among the Republicans, Herman Cain and Rick Perry imploded and Newt Gingrich gained ground. Cain may know how to market a vegetable (that’s pizza to you, son) into a million-dollar business, but he doesn’t know Libya from Syria. And then there’s the charges of sexual harassment, but apparently ignorance and sexual harassment are not disqualifiers for the White House anymore (see George W. Bush on the first and Bill Clinton on the second). Lord, we are a tolerant people, or at the least the Republican voters who keep telling pollsters their favorite candidate is Cain. Perry couldn’t remember the third government department he would eliminate. If he were really smart, he could’ve said, “well, why don’t we just eliminate them all?” and he’d be the front-runner today. Apparently Texas folks don’t rate intelligence too high on their governor-qualifications list — so we should leave him in Texas where he can attend ceremonial barbeques and sing “The Eyes of Texas.” Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman just are taking up space on the debate stage.

The Roots dissed Michele Bachman on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. She didn’t deserve it anymore than Michelle Obama and Jill Biden deserved the smattering of boos by some NASCAR rednecks. At least Bachmann says what she believes, which is more than you can say for Mitt Romney, who has given flip-flopping a bad name. Tell me again what Romney believes in other than getting elected. Obama pardoned two turkeys, which only makes me feel guilty about eating any of the bio-engineered birds that weren’t so lucky. I’ve got a feeling they don’t pardon turkeys in Texas, just deep fry them ... The super committee failed to reach an agreement on how to trim more than $1.99 from the federal deficit. It wasn’t so super and its failure will not be mourned by this columnist. In the short run, we ought to be more concerned about putting people back to work because when they work, they pay taxes, and then the deficit goes down. Then worry about the deficit, which, by the way, should include the end of the “temporary” Bush tax cuts for the wealthy and the middle class. Kim Kardashian got divorced. I am simply shocked the marriage didn’t last until death did them part or at least three months. I am simply Kardashianed out. I have even stopped watching Kim’s sex video, although eye strain did play a part in my decision. The Kardashians are in love with the letter “K.” Kim even married Kris Humphries and is rumored to have admitted what attracted her most was he didn’t spell his name Chris. Kim’s mother is named Kris. Kim’s sister is Kourtney. Kim claims Kris treated her with “kontempt,” according to the divorce papers. Brother Rob seems like a nice kid, but for some reason he was not named Karl, but he almost won “Dancing with the Stars” and I, for one, am grateful he didn’t. Just think — first the Mirror Ball trophy, then a sex video, then the splashy marriage, and then the divorce. Rob was spared all that, and so were we. Mayor Michael Nutter was re-elected with about 75 percent of the vote, which is more of a testimony to the Republican Party’s state in Philly than his popularity. The local GOP is not only on life support, the hospital is trying to find out if it has a living will ... Black Friday sales were extended to the night before. Soon Thanksgiving may disappear altogether and be replaced by allday Christmas sales. I predict next year on Thanksgiving, half of our citizens will be sleeping in tents in political protest and the other half will be sleeping in tents outside of Best Buy to get a couple hundred bucks off a large-screen TV. Kind of gives new meaning to tent city. Strike up the Christmas songs. It’s on to December. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/opinion/ cardella.

Marveling about ‘Hugo’

Isabelle (Chloë Grace Moretz), left, meets Hugo (Asa Butterfield) inside the Paris train station that the title character calls home.

R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

C

an Martin Scorsese inspire a new generation of classic-film buffs, who marvel at the crank of an antique camera, the magic cascade of light through celluloid, and the fanciful, dawnof-the-medium creations of filmmaker Georges Méliès? That’s one question that surfaces after walking out of “Hugo,” Scorsese’s firstever family film and first-ever 3-D project, which brings author Brian Selznick’s “The Invention of Hugo Cabret” to the screen as a quasi-autobiographical labor of love for cinema’s foremost American master. It’s hard to say if Scorsese’s use of the latest technology to convey Selznick’s fundamentally filmic themes will indeed result in an audience of enchanted, curious youths, but for big kids already fond of motion-picture romanticism, there’s plenty of wizardry to be found. The film’s title character (Asa Butterfield) is an orphaned boy who winds the clocks in a 1930s Paris train station, an occupation once overseen by his late father (Jude Law), a clockmaker and film lover with a passion for mechanical knickknacks. Moving gears and cranks are just about omnipresent in “Hugo,” appearing in the corners of frames as part of the young hero’s behind-the-scenes world, and underscoring the well-oiled perfection of Scorsese’s craftsmanship. Sweeping you into the station setting and adding locales like an ethereal Paris skyline and Méliès’ own home (where Hugo befriends Isabelle, a plucky bookworm played by the meteoric Chloë Grace Moretz), the director most certainly offers 3-D’s most sophisticated entry, unfurling smart visual reverie even when the movie lags around its middle.

More than a children’s adventure, “Hugo” emerges as a kind of offbeat biopic, with its weightiest emotional content reserved for Méliès, a tragic character beautifully played by Ben Kingsley. Devastated by the war-triggered death of his art, Méliès is a dreamer in need of resurrection, and Scorsese uses the salvaging of the real-life legend’s life and work to further transmit his own long-standing commitment to film preservation. Egocentric? Nah, “Hugo” is far too lovely to be so cynically labeled. Cinema-centric? Indeed, and celebratory, and wondrous.

Hugo PG Three-and-a-half reels out of four Now playing in area theaters

Recommended Rental The Help PG-13 Available Tuesday Boosted by a handful of fine performances and an insistence on giving its black maids strong voices of their own, this amiable, goes-down-easy adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s literary blockbuster hovers above other ostensibly anti-racist films made for white America, telling a tale that, however comfy, largely dodges condescension. Viola Davis is fantastic as head maid Aibileen, and breakout star Octavia Spencer brings potent laughs as the outspoken Minny.

N

ow that the holidays are upon us, it also means a lot of time in the kitchen prepping for all of the parties. Instead of just cheese and veggie platters, treat guests to Marilyn Werner’s classic Clams Casino. The resident of the 100 block of Dufor Street hopes her offering takes the crown for crowd-pleasing appetizer. The treats are easy to make and while Marilyn prefers baking, they also can be broiled and ready in a matter of minutes. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/food-and-drink/recipes.

Marilyn’s Clams Casino INGREDIENTS:

3 to 4 peppers, chopped 2 to 3 onions, chopped 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine g Garlic powder, to taste White pepper, to taste About 24 clams 1 package of bacon

A winning bet

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven or broiler to 350 degrees. Sauté the peppers and onions in the butter. When thoroughly cooked, add the garlic powder and white pepper. Refrigerate the mixture until cold. Take the clams out of their shells. Wash the shells. Chop the clams and put them back into the shells. Spoon the mixture over the clams. Place a small strip of bacon on each filled clam. Bake for about 25 minutes or broil for about five minutes.

Tapestry By Phyllis Stein-Novack R e s ta u r a n t R e v i e w e r

C

arole King is one of my favorite performers. She is a multi-talented award-winning singer, songwriter and pianist who turns 70 in February. King’s 1971 album “Tapestry” stayed on the charts for about six years. When I think of a tapestry, a richly woven colorful piece of huge, heavy European cloth comes to mind. I guess it is because I love visiting museums, looking at the old and modern tapestries on display. A new restaurant opened in Queen Village called Tapestry. I was intrigued with the name, made a phone call and discovered it’s a gastropub with enough brews to please all beer lovers. It is located at the former site of Adsum, Matthew Levin’s quirky eatery, which abruptly closed when Levin left. A charming man welcomed Edward, my sister Sandy and I and led us to a simple, black table with matching chairs. The menu is a mix of old and new pub dishes, with some interesting twists. Edward sipped a Bombay martini, a bargain at just $8.25. Sandy and I were in the mood for wine and the friendly barkeep sent over tastes of a Pinot Grigio and a chardonnay, both $8. The Charles Smith Chardonnay was rich and oaky, which I prefer. We started with chicken liver mousse ($6), a mixed-green salad ($9) and the charcuterie selections of the day ($12). The mousse, topped with a bit of microgreens and slightly sweet cherries, was whipped to a smooth creamy texture that won raves all around. We spread it on toast Coffee/Café/Sweets Caffe Chicco: 2532 S. Broad St., 215-334-3100, $

points and gobbled it all down. The salad contained pickled fennel, which added a piquant flavor to tiny, yellow teardrop tomatoes, baby spinach and mesclun. The salad was overdressed and contained too much vinegar. A fine collection of thinly sliced cured meats were set out handsomely on a large board. It included imported prosciutto di Parma, sopressata, lomo, bresaola, hot coppa and speck along with a small ramekin of almonds and sweet, tiny sliced dates. Fresh ciabatta slices circled the meats. Edward asked for some Dijon and our server brought over a jar of Grey Poupon. Although each meat was tasty and fresh, the board needed a bit of contrasting flavors. The addition of cornichons and pickled onions would have done the trick. I am still dreaming of the Shepherd’s pie served up at The Dandelion. When I discovered the chefs at tapestry use minced lamb in the dish, I had to try it. My Shepherd’s pie ($10) arrived hot and bubbly. Minced lamb is sautéed with tiny bits of carrot, topped with whipped potatoes laced with some of Vermont’s finest aged cheddar cheese. I was hooked. It was comfort food at its best although I thought the lamb needed just a wee bit more seasoning. This is a matter of personal taste. Edward’s pork chop ($12) was cooked pink and not a bit overcooked. We thought the chef had a heavy hand with the cracked pepper that coated the outside of the boneless chop. His dinner came with french fries and a bit of salad.

Edward sampled two beers that our waiter suggested. He enjoyed the Stillwater Stateside Saison ($6) that drank well with the pork. We were all disappointed with the fried oysters ($13) that Sandy ordered. It should have been on the small plate list and not the platters. She received a small plate with small oysters, which were overfried. Sandy thought someone in the kitchen cut up the oysters into small bits and then fried them. The tartar sauce needed work. It was too thin and lacked flavor. Unlike Edward’s, Sandy’s dinner did not come with fries and salad. Fries and coleslaw are traditional with fried oysters. Tapestry is a family pub. Highchairs are available. There were a few children enjoying dinner with their parents. When we entered, I thought it might be too dark, but the lighting was sufficient. The music on the sound system coupled with the sounds of people enjoying themselves, raised the

32 SOUTH PHILLY REVIEW I December 1, 2011

T h e To q u e S t o p s H e r e

It’s time to finalize the holiday gift list. For those in a cooking frame of mind, there are many great wrap-worthy items. By Phyllis Stein-Novack Food Columnist

I

t’s another holiday season and we’re all a year older. I have learned much from browsing and shopping this past year. I learned the moral of “Miracle on 34th Street” does not embrace the spirit of a 21st century holiday season. The bottom line, according to my sister Sandy, is corporate greed. I don’t know why anyone would go shopping on Thanksgiving. Walmart and Target television ads are degrading to women. If I see one more commercial for single serve coffee machines, I am going to throw my shoe at the TV. All those little white plastic cups filled with coffee pile up and are not green. I recommend an inexpensive Melitta drip coffeepot or an electric one that does not require filters. Now that I have finished my venting, let’s turn our attention to gifts made in America or Europe the whole family will enjoy. Please support local merchants is my mantra this year. Small Business Saturday was a success. The shops I visited were crowded and the merchants were hospitable and answered my questions. Customer service is a rare quality these days. Fante’s is my go-to place for everything for the kitchen. Mariella, Steve and the knowledgeable staff are experts and will speak with you to determine exactly what you wish to buy. The website has each item listed with a photograph, a detailed description and country in which the product was made. There are many items made in America, Italy, France, Spain and Portugal. Gifts for cooks and bakers need not be high-ticket items. Snoop around the kitchen to see if cake pans, muffin tins, baking sheets and the like need to be replaced. I did just that last Valentine’s Day at Fante’s. I also bought an OXO salad spinner.

Consider a piece of American-made All-Clad Cookware. A high quality chef’s knife, bakeware made in France, Italy and Spain are fine choices and reasonably priced. I will buy a made-in-Spain paella pan from Fante’s. Putting together a gift basket with ingredients from Di Bruno Brothers and Garces Trading Co. is fun and unique and adds a personal touch. I don’t know anyone who would not welcome a basket filled with olive oil, vinegar, imported pasta, a jar of fig jam and a bottle of Super Tuscan wine. By the way, the Beaujolais Nouveau is very good this year should you want to build a basket around French items. I am a champion of Le Creuset. For my birthday last May, Edward and I purchased a 7-quart green risotto pot, which is truly all-purpose and not just for making risotto. We went to the Le Creuset outlet in Flemington, N.J. It retails for about $380, but was just $92. There is another location at the Premium Outlets in Limerick. My advice is never buy a set of anything. Those on your list do not need 10 knives and a “batterie de cuisine,” which includes pots and pans that are too small. Still, if someone you know loves to bake, a KitchenAid or Cuisinart stand mixer will be treasured for years and years. An inversion stick blender is another fine tool.

Don’t fall for something useless like the Cuisinart hot and cold soup maker that is all over TV. A blender, a food processor and a good stockpot fills the bill nicely. Here is a recipe for the holidays from “Dolci: Italy’s sweets” by Francine Segan.

■ Rustic Tuscan Apple Cake ■ Ingredients:

2 tablespoons of butter 1-3/4 cups of flour 2/3 cup of sugar, plus 1 tablespoon 2 large eggs 1/2 cup of milk 2 teaspoons of baking powder 1 teaspoon of baking soda Grated zest of 1 lemon 4 small Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored

Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour an 8-inch round cake pan. In a large bowl, using a whisk or electric mixer, beat the 2/3 cup of the sugar and the eggs until creamy and light yellow. Beat in the flour, milk, baking powder, baking soda and lemon zest. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Dice one of the apples and sprinkle it over the batter. Thinly slice the remaining apples and spread them in a neat pattern over the diced apples. Scatter thin pats of butter over the apples and sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Bake for about 75 minutes, until dark golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serves eight to10. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/foodand-drink/features.

Mary Longo

PaPola n ov e m b e r 1 9, 2 0 1 1

Mary Longo Papola, M.D. was born January 16, 1919. She was the second of four girls born in South Philadelphia to Italian American immigrants from Calabria, Italy. A graduate of John W. Hallahan Catholic High School, Immaculata University, and Temple University School of Medicine in 1943, she was one of only five female graduates. After training at Misericordia Hospital, she opened her general practice of medicine which included Obstetrics/ Gynecology and pediatrics in her hometown of “South Philly”. Caring for the Clergy and the Sisters of the many holy orders she become affectionately “Dr. Mary” to those closest to her.

Active in her parish of St. John Neumann, cooking for the poor, giving communion to the sick, Mom remained a dedicated caregiver in retirement. She established the Mary Longo Papola Women in Science Award. Even at 90 years of age, she coordinated weekly mass services to Freedom Village where she lived with Dad until her death, November 19, 2011.

House calls were a daily routine besides her busy office schedule and 24/7 obstetrical practice.

Words cannot express, the gratitude, love and affection for Mom and her lifetime of dedication to all of us who were blessed by her goodness.

At 42 years of age, she added an instant family to the list of responsibilities. After the untimely death of my mother, she married my dad, Gino G. Papola, M.D., raising Anita, Gino, Jr., Frank, and myself. She kept her professional title of Mary E. Longo, M.D., but officially became Mary Longo Papola, taking our surname, something rarely seen today.

All our love All our lives!

In the early ‘1970s’ both Doctor parents became active in the St. Francis Chapter of the National Catholic Physicians Guild as well as the International Association of Catholic Physician known as FIAMC (Fédération Internationale des Associations Médicales Catholiques). Together with my Dad they travelled the world until 2003 to discuss and teach Medical Ethics in practice. She had audiences with Pope Pius XII, Pope John XXIII, Pope Paul VI, Pope John Paul II, and Blessed Mother Teresa.

Six athletes continued their schools’ traditions of producing collegiate signees. By Joseph Myers R e v i e w s ta f f w r i t e r

hen Kahleah Copper revealed her college selection Nov. 14 in the auditorium at Prep Charter ter High School, 1928 Point Breeze Ave., she did more than make the Rutgers Universirsity Scarlet Knights happy. The 17-year-old old also delighted her mother, Leticia Copper, per, who is fighting breast cancer and will require only a short trip to watch her youngngest daughter’s basketball games. “Family was definitely an important facactor,” the standout, whom ESPN’s HoopGurlz urlz recruiting rankings have named the nation’s n’s 17th-best prospect, said of choosing the Big East power and making it the envy of cononference foes DePaul, St. John’s and Syracuse usee universities, her other finalists. T-shirts of her foursome lay on a table as as the senior entered to classmates’ cheers. errs. Beaming, the North Philadelphia resident sat sat with her matriarch and coach Paul Rieser. “I am thrilled Kahleah has the opportutunity to continue to grow as a player,” R Riieser said of Copper, who last year earned need First-Team All-Public and All-State honon4.3 ors after averaging 17.5 points and 14.3 s.. rebounds a contest for the 25-3 Huskies. He has helped 13 players to acquire schololarships to Division I, II and III institutions and reveled in tabbing Copper his 14th. He lauded the 6-foot-1 figure as a role model, with the assembled students wondering for whom she will next year serve as an exemplar of maturity and skill. After a speech, Copper asked her peers to predict her pick. Hearing every site, the coveted teenager, whose stock skyrocketed courtesy of assisting her team to the 2011 Public League Championship — the West Passyunk squad’s first — rose to unzip her jacket. Applause signaled the learners’ approval of Rutgers. Her mother smiled as her child’s signature adorned the National Letter of Intent and put the New Jersey school in line to add to its ’00 and ’07 Final Four runs under Hall of Fame coach C. Vivian Stringer. “I decided Oct. 22,” Copper said of having her multiple visits to North Jersey bear fruit. Exploring the campus bred feelings of

contentment, which she co nten nt ten enttm tmen tmen entt, whi w hich h sh she he shared sh sha hare hare redd with wiithh famfam fam am-ily and friends. “They told me I had to go with my gut,” she said of putting an end to pondering. In love with becoming a college student, the National Honor Society member will major in either criminal justice or psychology. On the hardwood, she expects immediate results and will receive motivation from two of her teammates on the Amateur Athletic Union’s New York Gauchos who compete for Rutgers. In the Public League title game, she scored 19 points and claimed 17 rebounds, tallies that garnered her MVP honors. The Lady Huskies fell in the District 12 Class AAA championship and the PIAA State quarterfinals to Warminster-based Archbishop Wood. The losses have motivated her to make this year a monster one. “This year’s goal is simple,” Copper said. “I want the state championship.” Michael Borelli gives the school another senior who craves Pennsylvania prow-

ess. ess es s. A threat th thr hrea hrea eatt as an an infi infielder, in eld el lde der, outfi der out utfi tfielder eld el lde der and der and pitcher, the resident of the 2700 block of South Colorado Street signed with University City’s University of the Sciences. The school’s first baseball player to land a scholarship, the NHS member desires to become a pharmacist and chose the facility to bring his ambition closer to fruition. The reigning Division B MVP selected the University of the Sciences from four schools. It recruited him as a pitcher and an outfielder, meaning Borelli will maintain his status as a menace to hitters and hurlers. He has earned 24 mound triumphs and a staggering .508 batting average, leading his unit to the ’09 Class AA Final and last year’s semifinals. “I decided in October after an overnight stay,” he said of becoming a Devil. He scribbled his name with as much poise as he has when hurling fastballs and deliberated on what next year will yield on the field and in the classroom.

FOUR STUDENTS FROM Ss. Neumann-Gorettti High School, 1736 S. 10th St., joined ttti Borelli B Bo o in inking future destinations later that day. A jubilant after-school crowd flocked to the East Passyunk Crossing site’s conference room to honor basketball bigwigs Omowumi “Ki-ke” Rafiu and Derrick Stewart and baseball bashers Joey Gorman and Jimmy Kerrigan. Classmates stood behind the seniors with caps of their choices, with Rafiu selecting Washington, D.C.’s Georgetown University, Stewart picking Lawrenceville, N.J.’s Rider University, Gorman opting for Saint Joseph’s University and Kerrigan deciding on Temple University. The athletes signed simultaneously, with Nigeria’s Rafiu drawing the most fervent cheers. Like Copper, the Southwest Philadelphia resident, in only her second year in the United States, thrilled a Big East constituent. The returning First Team All-Catholic honoree, who averaged 12.7 points and 11.1 boards in her debut campaign, chose the Hoyas early last month from five courters.


Sports “I felt like one of them,” the forward said of watching a practice. A defensive dynamo who swatted 3.2 shots per game, Rafiu hopes her tenacity will prove her greatest contribution to the Hoyas, with her academic curiosity sure to make her a well-rounded matriculator. With her African roots, that Rafiu wishes to study international business or business administration should shock nobody. “For now, I want to make us better,” she said of her Saints. It is scary to hear Stewart wants the same for his team, as it is coming off a 27-4 season that produced a third-straight Catholic League crown and a second-straight PIAA Class AAA State championship. “We have a successful program and if the guys push themselves, I’ll push them, too,” the forward/center and Upper Darby dweller said of sustaining his school’s reputation. The First Team All-Catholic pick averaged 11.7 points and 7.5 rebounds a contest. Four schools sought him, with Rider, for whom his brother Danny, a ’10 Neumann-Goretti graduate, plays, winning. “They want me to exceed my expectations,” the future accounting major said of counting himself fortunate to have the Broncos’ support.

MEDICAL

Gorman, of the 300 block of Ritner Street, had six offers and decided on the Hawks because of the coaching staff, the team’s potential and the school’s atmosphere and proximity. A First Team AllCatholic pitcher and outfielder, he will primarily pitch and is planning to study either business or psychology. If the latter, he can counsel his strikeout victims, as he looks to build on a pedigree that helped his team to win this year’s Catholic League and PIAA District 12 AAA crowns. “No matter where I am, my mindset is one of not wanting to lose,” he said. Kerrigan, another First-Team outfielder and a resident of the 1700 block of West Moyamensing Avenue, feels the same. He attended various showcases and impressed the Owls’ brass with his skill. “I had a feeling I was meant to be there,” he said of the school where he will likely major in sports medicine. No matter what the future may hold, Kerrigan, like the others, knows senior year is big. “I hope we can win the Catholic League, city and state championships,” he said. SPR

Holy Spirit, You who make me see everything and who shows me the way to reach my ideals, You who give me the divine gift to forgive and forget the wrong that is done to me and You, who are in all the instances of my life with me, I, in this short dialogue want to thank you for everything and affirm once more that I never want to be separated from you no matter how great the material desires may be. I want to be with you and my loved ones in your perpetual glory. AMEN. Thank You for your love towards me and my loved ones. Pray this prayer three consecutive days straight without asking for your wish. After the third day your wish will be granted. Promise to publish your dialogue as soon as your favor has been granted. m.d.
