Air temperature 41 F and overcast for the newspaper walk, wind N at about 5 mph, world damp. Too cold for the slugs to be out racing on the sidewalks.

You need an enemy if you want to gain power. If one doesn't already exist, invent one.

Raining. 49 F. So much for those transient dreams of a bike ride today . . .

Earlier today, someone was asking about rumors of a sequel to "Romeo and Juliet." And, as one does, I got to thinking.

You have a lot of Montagues and Capulets left over at the end of that play. What if they looked around at the carnage, made an alliance, and went after the Duke that was playing them off against each other in best Machiavellian fashion?
