The Bright Lights Of Downtown Lawrence

Sun Apr 6 20:32:07 EDT 2008

And since Mr Glavin is from Methuen, which, I believe, abuts Lawrence,
you are making me want to sing at least one rousing chorus of the late
Jess Cain's immortal composition, "Fly Me to Methuen." Jess probably
wrote a song parody about Lawrence itself at some point, but if he
did, it never reached the heights of popularity of Fly Me to Methuen.
Even his "Nantasket, Nantasket, the Insular Peninsula Down there in
Hull" never achieved the status of Fly Me to Methuen.
