Cool. Bob's surname is ONOPA, though, rather than "Onapa."

Todd Mason said...

And Ester's last name is Wier.

In caps?
Sorry I was really tired when I did this. I bet there are more.

I know the feeling. Bob is still foiling you...he's up now as Onapo, rather than Onopa...miniscules acceptable!

Was just reading John Hughes's introduction to "Vacation, 1958" in the new ZOETROPE ALL-STORY, JH's first big short story in NATLAMP and the source of NL'S VACATION. The story rich in Grosse Pointe nostalgia, and as one who did a lot of childhood travel in a Plymouth Sport Suburban (1969 version), I can deal. You've heard that MAD MEN, btw, will be flashing forward several years for the new season? It took me a while to realize that SWINGTOWN wouldn't've been greenlit without MM.

Sometimes I forget to save the changes. I'll look for the ZOETROPE but it's pretty rare to find it here.
There's no nostalgia in GP; it never changes so there doesn't have to be. It's still 1962 here.
I don't like to jump but I guess it opens new situations.
