Jernigan Pontiac has been a cab driver in Burlington for over 20 years. From the front seat of his cab, Pontiac has seen it all, from college student brawls to surprising acts of kindness. Pontiac has been documenting his observations since 1997 in a column called “Hackie.” A collection of these columns has just been published in the book, “Hackie: Cab Driving and Life.” (To hear Neal Charnoff’s interview with Pontiac, click on the “Listen” icon.)
“Hackie: Cab Driving and Life” is published by Morris Publishing. Pontiac will be appearing at Bear Pond Books in Montpelier Tuesday evening at 7.
