STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND DAVID WHITEHOUSE
  • A letter from Homer U. McDancey suggests that Vic give marching lessons at various State Homes in 22 different states:
  • Alabama State Home For the Nauseated
  • Arizona State Home For the Eager
  • Colorado State Home For the Bashful
  • Connectict State Home For the Affable
  • Kentucky State Home For the Suspicious
  • Maryland State Home For the Surprised
  • Minnesota State Home For the Right-Handed
  • Mississippi State Home For the Impersonal
  • Missouri State Home For the Tall
  • Nebraska State Home For the Nice-Looking
  • New Hampshire State Home For the Disgruntled
  • North Dakota State Home For the Shy
  • Ohio State Home For the Bald
  • Ohio State Home For the Obstinate
  • Oklahoma State Home For the Mistaken
  • Oregon State Home For the Light-Complected
  • Pennsylvania State Home For the Reactionary
  • South Carolina State Home For the Dainty

  •   Russell volunteers:
    "…there was a case in Indiana where a fella invented ice cream without any flavor…"  and later:
    "… there was a case in Indiana where a fella liked raw potatoes better than popcorn…" and still later:
    "…there was a case in Indiana where a fella waited for a streetcar 37 hours."

If this were available to us on audio, I can imagine it being one of the very best; at any rate, it would be part of the Vic and Sade storytelling that you can find in articles all over.  At least now the story is out there in print and can be (almost) fully appreciated.
