Jack’s readers have requested that the blogs be re-posted. In December I will begin republishing the blogs in their original order and the site will remain unchanged. If you’re on the mailing list, then you’ll be receiving notices of the re-posted blogs plus any surprise entries by Jack. And, yes, he’s doing just fine and will continue to reply to your comments and emails. If you have any questions you may email me, email@example.com.
In the 1942 film classic Casablanca, Richard “Rick” Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) never says “Play it again, Sam.” In fact, nobody does. There are two exchanges that come close. The first takes place between Ilsa Lund Laszlo (Ingrid Bergman) and Sam (Dooley Wilson) and the second takes place between Rick and Sam.
