Ambrose Bierce, Judge Crater, Jimmy Hoffa, Amelia Earhart, and now Steve Silver are nowhere to be found. Do we suppose foul (or in Steve’s case, fowl) play is involved? Let us not fear the worst. However, if anyone knows how to go onto profiles (other than clicking on the avatar, which of course in Silver’s case ain’t there no more) please post the answer, so at least the rest of can see what he’s been trying to post.
Meanwhile, I’m re-posting something I did a few years back in his honor. Steve, buddy, if you’re able to see this, mazel tov. I hope on this post-Yom Kippur evening you’ve been atoned, or at least gotten off on a technicality…
One of the great radio shows of the 20th Century was The Fred Allen Show, and one of its most popular features was his weekly walk down Allen’s Alley. On one such walk he encountered Mrs. Nussbaum, who always had words to say about her husband Pierre: “Oy, Mister Allen! Last night mine husband Pierre is dreaming he is the Lone Ranger, and all night he is yelling in his sleep, ‘Hi-Ho, SILVER!!’ Well…in our building is living a Mrs. Silver sleeping with her window open, and all night long she is yelling back, ‘Hi-Ho, NUSSBAUM!’”
Hurry back to us, Silver. We miss you.
