Bridging the Generational Gap

One of my favorite stories about my dad is how he, at 12 or 13-years-old, became a paper delivery boy. The newspaper manager took my dad and his younger brother with him door-to-door soliciting to increase subscriptions. The manager would say to them, “Okay, scuff up your clothes with a little dirt.
