HATS OFF ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!
It was Hats Off at 7th and Montana this morning as The Strawman -- the local fashionista known for covering his entire head from the shoulders up with a Gargantuan Straw Hat -- did the unthinkable. He exposed his head to the elements for the first time since February and, in doing so, put to rest an Ugly Rumor. "I guess that settles it," I said, dejectedly, "He couldn't possibly be Luke Skywalker's Father." It didn't take long to learn that the hat serves a vital function: It muffles his cell phone conversations. I wonder whether it's available in bulk ...!
