My partner Joe (He was named after St. Joseph.)tells people that he saw West Side Story about 20 times. I don't know if this is true or not. It could be. He grew up in Lodi, New Jersey which is very close to Manhattan. I do know that he has seen the movie many times. The song Something's Coming captures the spirit of Advent wonderfully. It is time to see West Side Story again.
