4-2: Paul Drew Blog


  • I grew up in Harrison (Gardens for 14 years before moving to Jersey Street; worked at Polsky’s through h.s.; graduated from St. Benedict’s in 1963.
  • I am a member of the Campbell/Russell Clan; my mother was Margaret and my grandfather was Big Paddy who lived at 14 South 5th in Chippie and Dolly¬†Cifelly’s house.

I started a blog about a month ago which I am going to forward to the two groups. If you like it, subscribe–no fee–and it will appear in your e-mail inbox every day. If you don’t simply unsubscribe (and I won’t take it personally).

The “hook” for my blog is PTSD, but you don’t have to have it, which I do, to get something out of the posts. Knowing both groups, I know there will be little hesitation on commenting.
