"It's so rare that I ask a question (silently) and get an answer (very publicly) in the same news cycle!" writes Ann Hoffman. "I saw the saxophonist on the side of a building on 14th Street a day or two ago when driving downtown. As is often the case, I asked myself two questions: who is that man and has that mural always been there but I just never saw it before. And along comes Union City (Cool jazz, mural and remembrances honor saxophonist letter-carrier Buck Hill 8/27 UC) and answers both questions - without making me feel dumb. Bless you my cultural guide!"
"Buck Hill delivered Council 26's mail when our office was on K Street," writes Carl Goldman. "He probably delivered the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild, Local 35's mail too, because they were in the same building. He was a really nice guy and great sax player. I am glad to see that he is being honored with mural."
