Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- March 1, 2002

THE REAL STORY: The two guys on the left and right made their living by writing, but the guy in the middle was the first to get his book published--at 89 years old, yet. He is SilverStringer Bill Jodrey. At the right is Advisor/editor Jack Driscoll of the Media Lab at MIT. And at the left is Don Norris, once of the Melrose Free Press and Cycle Sport Publications--who did a bit of artwork for his friend Bill.--photo by Natalie Thomson
