On “Empty Sacks,” July 20 Week-Ender blog post:

Ron,

I’ve been reading and enjoying your writings in PRB for a while now, but a side note in your recent “Empty Sacks” column caught my eye and made me laugh at the small coincidences in life. You mentioned reading the AP wire at the BGSU radio station your freshman year. I went running to your LinkedIn page to see when that was, but we missed each other in the timing. If you did that your senior year, in 1982-83, you would have been reading my scribbles. I wrote sports for the AP radio wires for 23 years starting in 1982, and now I learn I’m reading material from someone who may have been reading my writs back in those days of papyrus from machines that were as loud as a KISS concert. I love those tweaks in life and thought you’d enjoy a little feedback.

Nice, Ron. Keep up the good work. You’re a good read. I hope you consider putting some of your stories into book form. It might even sell!
