New Year's eve 1972 or early 1973, I was at a club in Aliquippa, PA with a guy I knew from my college days.   We stumbled out onto Franklin AVE.    I was carrying a copy of "Talking Book" by Stevie Wonder that I had just acquired through some sort of give away.    This was long before all news all the time.   It was probably the first time we stopped for more than 5 minutes the whole night.   The buzz on the street was amazing, "Did ya hear?"    "Clemente died in a plane crash."   To this day, when he and I talk about New Year's, we talk about that night.
