The gentleman at the right is Jerry Merwin. Jerry’s been the security manager at St. Paul Place, where D has its offices, for nine years. Crusty but lovable, he is renowned for keeping an eagle eye on the comings and goings around here. Nobody, and no thing, gets past Jerry without being scrutinized. Which make sense because, as a teenager, he lived in a forest-service lookout tower in the Angeles National Forest in California.
Besides his eagle eye, Jerry is also known for wearing Christmas ties. He’s got eight of ’em, in fact, and has been wearing them–not all at once, thankfully–starting in early December, for the past 15 years. So, in keeping with the spirit of the holiday season, we’re going to show you lucky FrontBurnervians Jerry’s finest Christmas ties, one a day, for the next week or so, starting tomorrow. And, you better not say anything bad about these ties of Jerry’s, or you’ll never visit anyone at St. Paul Place again.
