Now I'm really cursing that bastard New England antiques dealer who wouldn't ship to Canada, screwing me out of a vintage ad poster for Moxie soda, with Ed Wynn on it.

"If at all particular..."

Great photo Tom, Wynn was to early radio what Berle was to early TV, but most people don't have a clue about him beyond Babes in Toyland, if that. He was The Perfect Fool.

too right, swac. too little seen in the mainstream, for the mainstream flows an acidic bile burning cruelly those of most museful gifted, banished and accursed to the torture of dreams fulfilled by the masses in bondage to mediocre painted luxury
