Library Card

A library card gave me the world. “The World of Jimmy Breslin,” “The World According to Breslin” and “Nobody Asked Me, But… The World of Jimmy Cannon.”

I checked the Cannon book out of the library about a hundred times and probably paid more in fines than it would have cost to buy it. I was determined to master his style of one-liner columns. I have tried many times and never come close, but that doesn’t stop me from trying again and again.

I took my latest shot over at Bronx Banter.
