If you squint hard enough, you can just make out the filament from which the sun insists on swinging. And the damn lake won't stop humming "Fur Elise"--it can drive a man mad, you know. To our left is the street idiot with a firm grasp on Plato's teachings, and just ahead, spaghetti is being consumed as we speak. Iraq is pulling out all the stops for a charity ball next November, while Cuba bites her fingernails and lights up another joint. For all of this and more, tune out of the 10:00 news and get some fresh air.
