The article on the right is pretty famous; it was written by a very prolific journalist from the Forties, Morris Markey (1899 - 1950). If not for Alcoholics Anonymous, his topic in this column, we might never have heard of him.
"Somebody said the Lord's Prayer, and the meeting broke up. I walked three blocks to the subway station. Just as I was about to go down the stairs - BANG - It happened! I don't like that word miracle, but that's all I can call it. The lights in the street seemed to flare up. My feet seemed to leave the pavement. A kind of shiver went over me and I burst out crying...I haven't touched a drop since, and I've since set four other fellows on the same road."
