When I wrote in my book about my mother and father’s roots in Pittsburgh, I didn’t know that they (and I) would be featured in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review newsapaper:

I want to thank Mark Gruetze for spending time with me on the phone a few days ago.  He told me all about the growing number of blackjack locales in Pennsylvania…I told him about my parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and grandmothers growing up in Pittsburgh.  Although it is written in the Preface of my book, I did NOT mention to Mark that my Aunt Wilma died at a bingo hall in the Steel City!  Some things are better left unsaid when having a fun interview.
