    Wilson Palmer was a fixture at Biancke’s each weekday morning when Patti and I moved to Cynthiana in the middle 70’s. One of the characteristics of Wilson was that he always sat on the east end of the long table in the front and most of the time John Swinford sat to his immediate left.  
    They sat like that because, for one reason, they could see everyone who came into the restaurant and if they didn’t know them they could find out who they were and why they were in Cynthiana.
