"Ode to a Modern Mariner" 

Published October 29, 2008 at 11:20 a.m.

Last month, I wrote a cover story that featured celebrity raft builder Papa Neutrino. An ode to Neutrino just turned up in our snail mail bin:

Ode To a Modern Mariner

He came from the west in the land called Frisco.

A self-educated man who avoided disco.


To the shores of Burlington, a city in need.

To establish a new way, a better creed.


His followers were legion, his fame widespread.

A sojourner of truth who ate whole grain bread.


Was he the one, the great bambino?

No, no my friend, he was Papa Neutrino.
