HOPKINS: A super series offered a super opportunity

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal —

“NO!”

At that moment, with visions of the gulag dancing in her head, she thought to herself, “What have I just done?”

She was brought to a room where they indeed took her purse and looked through it, top to bottom. One little electronic item caught their attention and they asked her many questions about it. They had never seen a calculator before. Eventually, they let her go.

I don’t know what Mrs. Otis is up to these days, but it would be great to get her together with Bill for a couple of hours. I’m sure the conversation would have most people mesmerized.

Incidentally, the story Bill told us that knocked us to the floor of the newsroom wraps up Wolcott’s five-day series.

I hope you enjoy it.
