Things I learned from this week's Reader

-Three years ago, local director Dale Goulding was trying to find a copy of a novel by Saddam Hussein. (p. 1)
-Two years ago, Manny Flores beat Jesse Granato in the race for First Ward alderman.
-Thirteen years ago, Pigface/Ministry vet James Teitelbaum became obsessed with Tiki collectibles. (p. 12)
-Seven years ago, local scenester Norah Utley began giving away buttons that said "I heart Norah." (Section 3, p. 5)

Plus, a bonus quiz: What do these historical tidbits have in common? Answer here.

QUIZ ANSWER: Each is from the first sentence of a story. So four of the Reader's stories this week kick off by telling us about something that happened years ago. (In one case, more than a decade ago.)

Interestingly, Teitelbaum and Goulding worked together a bit when Teitelbaum did some graphic design for Goulding's theatre company in 1993.
