Just had a visit from Frank Pelatowski who is called "The World's Oldest Newspaper Columnist". Frank is one hundred years old. His column is in the Mariposa Gazette a Mariposa, CA, weekly paper.
His first column is about his days in the navy, which he joined in 1923. That is eighty-five, count 'em, eighty-five years ago. He learned to sleep in a hammock.
He has a web site, www.pelatowski.com, and you can get a link to hear an interview with Frank on radio.
On his visit here, he was accompanied by David Burke, a senior activist, who resides in the same old folks' home as Frank. The conversation was delightful, and the coffee and cookie were free.
