Humorist finds N.J. 'fascinating'

Jean Shepherd could very well be one of the last of a vanishing breed. He is an American humorist who writes books and short stories in an era when the American public spends little time reading. He doesn't do much TV and gave up radio. Furthermore, Shepherd is a self-described student of New Jersey. He has centered one of his TV series and several short stories on a subject most performers speak of disparagingly. . .

Additional Comments:
The hurricane he refers to was probably the September 14, 1944 hurricane. (There were no names for hurricanes back then)
