  3. The best thing about the name Kathy:
    Hi Kathy: I happened onto the Point Site, and saw the hlopoa that your book is causing! I followed and read the article in the Gazette. I have to tell you that I do agree with your findings although I did eat better than you ! I find people who lived there or some who still live there are somewhat delusional when it comes to the conditions in which many of us lived. Again, I have to agree with Angelo, I grew up at 421 St. Madeleine, I am sure we played Tomatso together in the street, I would not have traded one minute of my life there. We grew up quickly, we saw things that perhaps other children our age didn't see, but it has made me a fiercely independent adult with strong convictions of right and wrong. It has made me make better choices in my life and I have no regrets. But to say that live was a bed of roses growing up in Point St. Charles would be a lie. I hope you have much success with your book, I will definitely be reading it. I took have written a memoire of my life in the Point, if you should ever want to read it, I would be happy to pass it along. Perhaps you could guide me in having this published as well. Again, I look forward to reading your book.
