I was born in a small town, and I spoke in a small town

On 5/5-6/16, I was in Indiana for the first time, speaking at five schools (one in Amo, one in Monrovia, and three in New Palestine) and a library (Monrovia) that invited me at the last minute and drew a nice crowd.

The welcomes were warm, the books were signed, and the wish to return was immediate.

As I drove around I wondered if I was passing the childhood homes of John Mellencamp (who was born in a small town) or David Letterman. (I checked later; I was not.)

But I did have a brush with celebrity. Unless, of course, this is a different Adam West…

I, too, was born in a small town, out Connecticut way.
