I don't get it.

Yer pal,


High Praise for The Somerville News


Forgive me for not being back in touch sooner. Things are popping out here. I very much enjoy The Somerville News and your Lyrical Somerville column in it. The whole paper has the kind of enlightened intelligence that I haven't seen since the old days of The Village Voice back in the 70s. I am honored that you chose to include my poem in Lyrical Somerville. I am sure that you reach a broader swath of humanity with that column than most poetry magazines do, and I'm pleased to be a member of the club there.


I thoroughly enjoyed Doug's homage to one of my favorite places on the planet. Since I'm a simmer visitor, can you tell me if JP Licks closes during the winter? How I miss my summer walks past the Somerville News to catch the Redline. I won't be missing it for long. I'm packing to relocate. Until then, I'll keep reading Somerville News online....

JP Licks is open in the winter, though I've sometimes seen them close for a few weeks in January.
