    Thank you so much for your article last week about the cancellation of “Copper” – it was so greatly appreciated! Many fans are still trying to get the show back on the air, and your article was a true inspiration to all of us. I am still in shock that such a great show was cancelled, and your article gave voice to many in conveying the disbelief. Thank you again.

    Tom, I’m researching a fellow named Henry J. Duff (abt 1808-7/9/1891). He was a leader of the Irish community in Rhode Island before leaving, eventually moving to Brooklyn by 1860. He was a prolific writer. I have been trying to find info on him in Brooklyn. If you can suggest any leads I would be most appreciative. He was not an ancestor of mine, just a man I admire. I want to get his story out to the world.
    Thank you.

    Tom, I remember the Lion’s head back in 1964 when I was living in the village South of the Lion’s Head and I recall Eric Darling talked about it and it was on the West Side before it moved farther uptown, Does anyone know the street Address back in 1964?

    Thanks, Jim
