Ladies and Gentlemen, meet John Doe, an Anonymous Newcomer who made the scene at 7th and Montana this morning ... and did absolutely nothing extraordinary. I wouldn't have noticed him at all except that Kathy called my attention to him. "See that guy over there," she said, "He's been sitting here all week." "All week?," I asked. "All week," she said. I zoomed-in for a closer look, but there wasn't anything unusual about him. He wasn't belting out opera tunes; He wasn't pilfering Sweet 'n Low; He wasn't even throwing imaginary footballs at phantom goal posts. He was just sitting there, taking up space, reading a book. Or so it seemed. Mark my words, if he keeps showing up around here, one of these days he's going to snap. And I'll be right there with my Spycam to capture it for posterity ...!

Oh dear. He's one of the unemployed. This country has many, and if they're able they migrate South for the Winter.

Yeah, we know how that is. We spend lots of time at Starbucks ourselves these days. Cheap date. Reminds Mark and I of when we were courting.
