Problem/Solution/Com- plication

Problem: The cab driver doesn't know where he's going.

Solution: Decide between a) he's new here or b) he's completely mentally deranged. If "a," remain in the cab and give clear, explicit directions. If "b," tuck into a ball, open the door, and roll out of the cab before he has a chance to engage the child safety locks.

Complication: You decide he's both, or neither.

Solution: Flip a coin.

Complication: Tails.

Three Links

March. I got excited a little bit when it turned to March. I thought maybe Spring was coming. My barber laughed at this notion, but I wasn't concerned about that, but rather the fact that I had an itchy cough while he was using the straight razor. Why shouldn't he laugh? Haven't I lived in Chicago before? I have, for several years, but you can't fault my optimism. Lions and lambs. Lambs and lions.

These are interesting bits, in no particular order, and the sun will come, just give it time:

1) Molestation in Mumbai

2) Vanessa & Ryan

3) (

Lambs and lions. Lions and lambs.
