Some more links on the O'Rourke's fire.

An essay from a Wesleyan alum some of us know: http://mediaboy.livejournal.com/173161.html. It begins:

O'Rourke's Diner, 1946-2006

O'Rourke's Diner in Middletown, Connecticut burned down this morning.

That shouldn't mean much to you, but I feel like a lost a family member right now.

About halfway through my freshman year of college at Wesleyan, a group of about 5 of us decided on a Sunday night to hit O'Rourke's at 7:00 am the next morning.

We kept going every Monday until we graduated.
