I assume the candy will be dropped as individual pieces. If the plan is to drop whole cases, you may want to get Les Nessman to cover the story live.

I'll bet this won't be the first time a MaryJane was dropped on that field.

Why, Ed I had no idea you were a Tom Petty fan, much less one of "Mary Jane."

Never saw that video before, Billie. Any idea if the woman in the video was Alec Baldwin's ex?

Barb, thanks for posting the video, I realized after my post that there is an entire generation who has no idea who the infamous 5 time recipient of the Buckeye Newshawk Award and the coveted Silver Sow Award is.

She bought an entire Southern town at one point. Don't know how that turned out. Loved her in "L.A. Confidential."

I realized after watching the Tom Petty video that the end scene, where he walks from a cave into the sea and back, is the basis for the opening of each "Boardwalk Empire" episode, including the riffs.

Yeah, I remember that, Billie. And, like you, I never heard much more about it.
