Contents: How'd he do that? --
Every trip is a quest (except when it's not) --
Nice to eat with you: acts of communion --
If it's square, it's a sonnet --
Now where have I seen him before? --
When in doubt, it's from Shakespeare ... --
... Or the Bible --
Hanseldee and Greteldum --
It's Greek to me --
It's more than just rain or snow or springtime --
Is that a symbol? --
It's all political --
Geography matters --
One story --
Marked for greatness --
He's blind for a reason, you know --
It's never just heart disease ... and rarely just illness --
Don't read with your eyes --
Is he serious? And other ironies --
A test case.
Responsibility: Thomas C. Foster.
