The Prophet -- a local loon known for being a know-it-all -- finally proved that he doesn't know everything at 7th and Montana this morning ... and believe it or not, I was involved in his "undoing." "Hey you," he said to me, none too politely, "How does our weather around here compare with London?" He thought I was British. "Hmmm," I said, "Maybe you should ask them." I was standing near David and Kerry who recently moved to town from London. "Oh," said the Prophet, "I thought you were British. What do you do?" I had no intention of telling him about my real job, so I said, "Oh, I'm very involved with the Internet. You know ... blogs and that sort of thing." To emphasize my point, I waived my Spycam in his direction and quietly snapped a picture. "The Internet," he said, "Let me tell you all about the Internet." And he did. By the time he was done, I knew he deserved some special recognition. On the Internet, of course ...!
