Nothing is forgotten on the internet. A few days ago I posted an idle reminiscence about an incident at a New Rochelle bar I used to patronize (gulp!) 35 years ago.
One night the bartender/owner got into a dispute about something with a very well-oiled customer. The guy left, then came back a half hour later with a (presumably) very well-oiled chain saw, and proceeded to attack the bar with it, to the consternation of us patrons.
Well, someone picked up my post and passed it to a New Rochelle reminiscence website. Back came the answer (post #1540 here).
Jeff Williamson chainsawed the bar, I was there.
There are some follow-up posts: #1541, #1544, #1545, #1549, #1567, and #1568.
So the past is real. In some way.
