At times like this, one wishes for the technology of being able to add scent to print.

Iris Simpson Bush keeps the Flying Pig Marathon running

It is no exaggeration to call the executive director of the Flying Pig Marathon "the "peripatetic Iris Simpson Bush," so that is what I am going to do.

From the time, Iris was six years old, she was walking the two-mile round trip from her home on the East End “(4369 Eastern Avenue; it’s gone now”) to St. Stephen Grade School.
