It was/sorta-is the MLR and all the old stuff is still on line: http://mountainlaurelreview.com/FullTex ... =01&day=02
From the page above:
My friend Bernie wrote to me. He properly pointed out "The Rainbow Inn burned slap to the ground and Bud Beck again finds himself in the Era. He wrote three books, not a mention. Tom Riel runs for Mayor and the Era writes about Beck and the Nude Dance Club."
So the next day there was a followup article. Once more my "friends" at the newspaper did their work.
It was called "Rainbow Inn fire update". It was written by a woman of dubious integrity, questionable morality, and even alleged homosexual, or at least bi-sexual tendencies. I was offered photographs of her - the kind I can't publish here, to spread (pardon the pun) across the web in places that would certainly embarrass her and any parents she might have. As much as I might have like to, it was more than I could swallow.
While I was a gentleman and declined, she was not a lady. She put someone up to call my the mother of my grand daughter in an effort to dig up family dirt. She found out a lot.
Classy guy that Bud is!
