During World War II, my paternal
grandpa, “Pop” was too old to be in the army so he began to
work in a bombsight factory. Prior to this, he had been a jockey and
was a harness racer. Those are small two-wheeled carts that the jockey sits
in low behind the horse. Jockeys at that time were considered dirty
people and were not allowed to go into most restaurants or bars so they
had all their own places to eat and get drunk.
