  1. In the movie Die Hard, Bruce Willis removed his shoes only to find himself saving the Nakatomi building and all of it's hostages in bare feet. I couldn't help but notice that Kevin no longer wears shoes when he plays. Is he not concerned?

  3. Hot as hades, the only stage fan can be seen between me and Jimmy downstage. We took turns standing in front of it to alter the direction of the salty streams like rain on the windows of a moving automobile. We were absolutely saturated. I likened it to being made completely of tears as Jim spoke of feeling like pickles whereupon we segued sublimely into that rediscovered nugget.
