Subject: happy? - Sept 4 (1st newsboy)
Date: 04 Sep 05 - 12:27 PM

Newspaper Carrier Day
[Ok, ok, that could really be a "Happy!" --- Editor's choice]

celebrates the momentous day the NY Sun hired Barney Flaherty as the first newsboy: 9/4/1833.

        I sell the morning paper, sir, my name is Jimmy Brown.
        Everybody knows that I'm the newsboy of the town.
        You can hear me yelling "Morning Star", running along the street.
        Got no hat upon my head, no shoes upon my feet.

                One of (my) Tinker's favorite songs, "Jimmy Brown the Newsboy,"
                Recorded by Flatt and Scruggs, © Carter Family

Tom Paley, in his much younger days, sang:

        I smell the toilet papers, sir, my name is Jimmy Brown
        And everybody knows that I'm the pervert of the town....

                [thanx (so much) to dick greenhaus]
