Video 'Jonal' - #2:

Johnstown Inclined Plane

Between January 2001 and July 2006, your webmaster contributed 1000 essays ranging from memories of growing up in Blacklick Township and working as an usher at the Capital Theater to writing the teen column for the Journal and my thoughts about culture war and gay marriage. Beginning with this page, I'm beginning a new collection of video "Jonals" (as before, a play on the word "journal" and my name) sharing video clips of my travels and thoughts about them from the past 25 years, some of them in "Home Page Country" and others farther afield. Each one will contain a new narration addressed to the Home Page audience, and as I get into the swing of the process, I hope to provide a new one every weekend. Feedback—opinions, suggestions, ideas—as always, are welcome. This second one is a little-more--than-four-minute collection of clips from Johnstown, Pennsylvania, taken in August 1988. My travel partners on that cross-country tour from California to New Jersey were my son Michael, 14 at the time, and
my younger son, Kevin, who was 12. — Jon Kennedy
