Jim Hamilton is the protagonist of "The Hamilton Patent Moon" by Hayden Carruth. Copyright law being what it is today, no portions of that story will be reprinted here. You can find it in the Harper's New Monthly Magazine from May of 1899. Actually, I don't think that's the same Jim Hamilton.
Andy Ritchie is a stand-up comedian performing out of Austin, TX, and is a frequent performer at Cap City Comedy Club. He recently performed at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, and you can see him on the upcoming season of Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham".
