BITUSA- On the Cusp of Manhood


There is a time when boys pass into manhood and there are people to help them on their journey. The portal may seem mundane, but the moment is monumental.

Here I am with my visiting grandson, Sam, 15, from State College, Pennsylvania at his request at my favorite White Castle Hamburger restaurant in Minneapolis. The test of fried onions, steam grilled square beef patties with five holes in each patty in an unadorned eatery on a cold winter's day is over. It makes a person proud to know he was asked to be part of that experience.
