On Jan 22 at 5PM I will be interviewing journalist Stephanie Schorow on my show Poet to Poet Writer to Writer( Somerville Media Center) about her new book "Inside the Combat Zone: The Stripped Down story of Boston's most Notorious Neighborhood"--I remember visiting the Combat Zone in the 1970s when I was a student at Boston University -- I wanted to experience "life." I went to a seedy bar--one that Wilbur Mills might have frequented--sat down and was about to order when the woman next to me said, " Give this kid a glass of milk." That's Life!
