Holy crap! There's a sequel!

I've been a Jean Shepherd fan since I was old enough to sneak into my parents' bookcase. I love "A Christmas Story," but I sorely miss the American Playhouse version of "The Great American Fourth of July (and other disasters)"--starring a young Matt Dillon, no less. So when I went to look for t on YouTube, not only did I find what I was looking for, but I found the sequel to "Christmas." "My Summer Story," despite using b-list talent rather than c-list, does not have the pop of the original, but, hey, with Shep's narration, I'm willing to forgive a lot.
