Remembering John Wessel

I just learned that John Wessel passed away early Tuesday.

I met John through the Estey Organ Museum. He had worked at the Estey Organ Company in the pipe organ department, lived in Esteyville, and continued to build and restore organs after the company closed.

He would drop by the museum often, usually with some helpful criticism of how things were being done or displayed. He caught some errors for us, helped with events, attended everything, and was featured in the museum newsletter. He also helped repair organs and advise the museum on organs in the collection. He participated in round table discussions with other former employees. He also told some amazing stories.

Bob Bowman R.I.P.

Bob Bowman was one of the aforementioned “Senior Military, Intelligence, Law Enforcement, and Government Officials (who) Question the 9/11 Commission Report”. He was my fraternity brother at Rensselaer, and at my request, he spoke in Brattleboro on several occasions, discussing 9/11 and other events.

Early in his Air Force career, he was an “Interceptor” pilot, stationed at Andrews AFB near our nation’s capital. According to him, his job was to sit around for hours at a time drinking coffee.

Unless or until somebody flying a plane strayed outside of where he was supposed to be.

Sad to Lose Richie Havens

I always thought that he sounded a lot like Joe Cocker. My theory was that one of them was missing top front teeth and the other was missing lower front teeth. Never was able to find out. Opinion?
