Ray still trying to get his Social Security

Scoopy has an update on Ray Alvarez at Ray's Candy Store and his ongoing battle to get his Social Security ... In this week's issue of The Villager (fourth item in Scoopy's Notebook): "In a new development ... Alvarez said he’s now got two lawyers helping him. They’re trying to track down a copy of his long-lost Turkish Navy ID that he used to get his green card when Reagan granted amnesty to illegal immigrants back in the 1980s. 'It takes 10 to 22 months to get those papers — I may die before I get them,' Ray explained fatalistically as he mixed up a cherry slush for a customer last Saturday night."

As always, check in with Bob Arihood at Neither More Nor Less for photos and updates on Ray.
