For decades now, a dedicated Western Pennsylvania man has used the Classifieds section of the Butler Eagle (and occasional letters to the editor) to counsel readers on the hazards of alcohol and drugs.
This man, whose nicknames and frameworks of analogy have shifted and evolved countless times over the years, is Danny W. Shultz.
My name is Jules Bentley, and I’ve been a Danny W. Shultz fan since the late nineties, avidly reading his classified postings via the Butler Eagle’s website. For a li’l minute around 2006, some other Shultz fan ran a blog chronicling this tireless prohibitionist’s efforts, but that site is now lost in the mists of the internet. I’d love to find it and add its entries.
Once I win the powerball, I will hire graduate students to go back through the Eagle’s pre-2002 archives and type up each of Danny’s epigrams. In the meantime, as a poor man of poor means, I can only try my best to catalog his ongoing classifieds as he writes them.
To clarify: This blog’s entries are transcriptions (or copy-pastings, if you will) of Danny W. Shultz’s classified advertisements in the Butler Eagle.
While Danny W. Shultz writes letters to the editor on diverse topics, those which do not concern substance abuse fall outside the purview of this discount-domain-named blog.
On the offchance he should be directed to this humble electronic undertaking, let me say to Mr Shultz: I wish you long, joyful and undrunk life. Be you Bug, Pooka, Dragon Fish, Vampire Fish or some as yet undreamt-of permutation, I stand beside you proudly in your relentless word-war against booze. Not really with ya on the “crusade against marijuana” thing, but hey– let’s focus on commonalities.
