Happy Holidays

Posted by Wayne G. Barber

My dear Wayne,

As Christmas quickly approaches, I reflect on the many gifts that I have received throughout the year. You, my dear friend, are one who I consider being extra special. I would be remiss if I didn't take a moment to let you know just how wonderful you were to me, and I continue to thank you for hosting and producing such an amazing segment on deaf dogs. Because of you and the education that you brought to your audience, I truly believe that more animals with differences are being accepted, loved, and even adopted. 

Your attention to our precious pups also brought attention to our book, Hogan's Hope. As a result, I believe that we sold more copies and donated all our profits to sending packages to our deployed soldiers and funds to non-profit animal organizations. Your caring and kindness have given gifts to others that may not have been possible otherwise.

My hope is that your holidays be filled with joy, peace, and love which throughout the entire New Year. 

Blessings and great appreciation always,

Author Mark Perry makes his annual Christmas visit to our program today.

Every year, Santa receives letters and ‘wish lists’ from boys and girls all over the world, but he hasn’t seen very many letters from Rhode Island arriving by mail this year. Therefore, Santa deploys ‘Post’ Mark, his mailroom elf, to Rhode Island, where he collects letters from kids all over the state. Along the way, ‘Post’ Mark meets kids in many Rhode Island communities who enthusiastically share fun facts about many of the things that make Little Rhody such a great place to live and visit. ‘Post’ Mark travels to, Slater Mill, McCoy Stadium, Roger Williams Park Zoo, WaterFire, Watch Hill Carousel, Newport Mansions, and many other gems across the Ocean State.

Writer;s Comment......

Posted by Wayne G. Barber

I was reading something today, which was an analysis of the thing that you always think you’re going to get told when you get arrested, which is, “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.” That’s the only sort of culturally available place in which, when you say something, you render it public and everyone owns it. It is no longer yours. It’s rare that that’s recognized. In our personal lives, when we tell someone something, we’re really annoyed if they tell someone else. And, as a writer, that’s a constant pitfall because people talk and that’s the life that’s in front of you and it may well end up in your work. That is apparently a form of, not theft exactly, but of using real life. When I write a book, I don’t feel I should decide who’s allowed to read it. It’s put out into space, and speaking is like that. That’s partly what I’m trying to do in these monologues.
