Benny Jay’s Secret Life

—by admin on August 3rd, 2009

Benny Jay’s been writing for many, many years. In an alternate existence, he writes about Chicago politics. As Benny Jay, he writes about everything else.

He and Rick Stone have teamed up to write “The Greens,” an adventure story about two boys racing around Chicago’s Cabrini-Green housing project in the 1970s. According to Milo Samardzija, “‘The Greens’ is the greatest book I ever read.” Wow! Who are we to argue with Gary, Indiana’s Greatest Writer?

We’ll let you know where and when you can buy “The Greens.” You’ll love it — promise.

      He’s charging suckers $45 to buy a t-shirt with his ugly mug on it to pay off losing presidential campaign debt. And he says he won’t rule out serving as Trump’s VP. That’s doubling down on his arrogance and stupidity. As TTC reader Jeanne from Sheboygan says, “Nice going, Dumbass!”
