Shock waves rippled across 7th and Montana this morning as the Dignified Walking Lady, known for wearing Arctic Attire in 90-degree heat, spoke a few words.

There I was, minding my own business, when she turned to me and -- in a deep, gravelly voice not unlike Jimmy Durante's -- said, "Put that cameraphone away, you punk ...
