Show Description
New Haven - some 10 and 11 year old kids set a bulldozer in gear down the street. After climbing over a Cadillac, it goes halfway into a variety store. This leads to a discussion about loose canons, rolling pianos and kid story about the time he was working at the steel mill and a freight car got out of control and crashed through a warehouse door. 'The railroad hods the steel mill together like a skeleton hold the body together. Shep talks about 'style'. Most people have a certain style which seperates them from the rest. Writers have style which makes them recognizable after reading only a few lines. Robert Service - Shep reads "The Cremation of Sam McGee"
