Tales by Tom

This podcast showcases the audio stories of Tom Cagley Sr.

Feb 12, 2012

Welcome to Tales By Tom. This is the seventh installment of Tom Cagley Sr's short story collections entitled, “Plain and Simple.” 

Story 12.  What’s in a name? It took me a while to shake my sheltered childhood, but news of the Holocaust did that to me in 1952. Concentration camps. I visited another one this past July called Mauthausen. I walked the steps, then saw the town. Thus, the question: What’s really in a name?

Story 13.  Noise: Oh, the burden it places on us all! It’s opposite is so delightful, that I wonder why we take such pains to fill up our waking minutes with one to the almost sinful ignorance of the other?
