Eating out on the Legacy Trail
Editor’s Note: The paper hired Northrupp to do a serious story on WEG, for which NoC lent him its home during the Games. He came back from his New Mexico vacation to a thoroughly destroyed backyard, starving dogs and this manuscript, part of which is serialized below. We can make no claims about any of the actions relayed below by Center, except for those verifiable through other sources. We would not run this at all, except for the late date at which this was made known to us, and the writer’s insistence that I signed a contract giving him “full access,” which he takes as full access to this paper. We offer this piece by Rupp only as a poor example of realist fiction, historical short story writing or local color regionalist writing.
