The final news we're scooping your way concerns a certain Brooklyn
public school's dance marathon. Relax, they don't shoot horses (yet!)
but Inky plans on hoofing her brains out, with all pledges benefitting
the PTA's Afterschool Program, a fine cultural institution that in
large part makes the East Village Inky's slightly belated publishing
schedule at all possible. If you'd like to donate to this worthy cause,
which is sock hopping in the gym come Jan 22, throw a buck or two in an
envelope and send it
The East Village Inky

and you'll have funded not only a lively hoofer, but also a worthwhile
endeavor in a strapped but striving multi-culti-urban public school.
