It was Many Happy Returns at 7th and Montana yesterday as Howard and Cathy's friend, David, made the scene, renewed and refreshed from his sojourn in China where he was careful to avoid eating anything "suspicious." The highlight of his trip was a visit to a small village in Tibet which, according to local legend, served as the basis for Shangri-La, the mythical paradise where visitors find inner peace, love and immortality. "I can't believe you actually visited Shangri-La," I said, impressed. "Yes," he replied, "It was boring. There's nothing to do but watch a bunch of Tibetan Monks who run around like crazy sending text messages to each other on their cell phones." Forget Shangri-la ... I think David really discovered Paradise Lost!
