The Donald and I Were Neighbors. Sort of.

     With all of the publicity about the Trump ascendancy to the presidency, you would have thought I would have realized before now that Donald and I grew up in the same hood. Well, almost the same hood.
     I read a lot about Trump, but didn't realize we had been neighbors till I watch a Tivoed PBS Frontline over the weekend.



     The Donald grew up in Jamaica Estates, which---big-picture---is only a few dozen streets from the humble16-foot wide home in Queens in which I grew up. Our home was exactly like the ones in the opening of Archie Bunker.



The Donald's family home was somewhat  more grand. Though not exactly The White House.
