A LESSON FROM THE GURU ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!
It was a full house at 7th and Montana yesterday. So full I had to take a seat at the counter against the wall, next to the Guru, the local eccentric known for knowing everything. I knew what to expect even before I sat down. "Let me tell you all about the European banking sector," he said. And then, without waiting for me to respond, he went on and on about the history of the British and Dutch banks. I tried everything. I looked away; I opened my iPad; I pretended to talk on the phone. Nothing worked. For all I know, he's still there now, yammering on about the Rothschilds. That's the problem with the counter at Our Favorite Starbucks. It's just like a seat in Economy Class ...!
