Good Morning, I loved the piece that Author Daniel Pinkwater did on small town America coffee shops, and how they are the essence of community. My wife goes to such a place everyday, and I would like to give her a copy of this talk. I tried to find it on the Web but could not. I heard it on UNC NPR on Tuesday, Nov 12, 2002 at 6:50 am. Could you tell me where I could get a copy. Thanks.

Daniel replies:

I happen to remember! That piece was done under special contract with National Public Radio for use in fund-raising, so they have it and own it, and it is in some archive, and will never see the light of day again. And should you ask them they will ignore you because they are National Public Radio, and you are a listener, so in their minds they outrank you.
