Personal sacrifice.

Posted By on Tue, Aug 30, 2005 at 1:36 PM

I'm going to the Champlain Valley Fair this weekend to see the Village People!

It's sort of an assignment; I'm supposed to write a "Scene@" for the paper.

I can't believe they still have the Indian. Do they call him that, or do they use the PC term Native American?

Unlike Menudo, the group still features mostly original members. Actually, I think only the Biker/Leatherman is a newbie. And he's been there for 10 years!

Oh yeah, K.C. & the Sunshine Band are playing too. Yippee!

When I was growing up, everybody thought they were so clever in asking me, "Hey Casey — where's your sunshine band?" It still happens occasionally.

I'm usually able to suppress the rage. I guess all that counseling helped. But I still bite my nails.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
