American Investigation, again. Lewistown PA Steelworker bar




Ruth, her mother Martha, and I visited Marjorie in Lewistown this weekend.
Marjorie lives across the road from Standard Steel, the oldest continually-operating steel mill in America. Just outside the gates of this aged but still productive plant, stands a gritty, time-weathered bar, The Steelworker.

As Frank Zappa once aptly noted in song, "America drinks and goes home."

L'Chaim y'all.
