Carolyn made me a photo here, Super Alan vs Jaguar Man, Scourge of Guatemala. I doubt he has a chance against that pounce of mine. A jaguar may always land on its feet, but I always land on my prey.
In other news, Chile is giving nearly a half million of its poorest citizens a box of nine books, including "The Catcher in the Rye" and Kafka's "Metamorphosis." How cool, I'm sure those books will get a lot of love, probably as much as my full set of Encyclopedia Britannica from 1973. My plants are higher and my stereo has a nicer home, so I guess that in Chile they won't have to bend over to pick up their beans or monkeys or whatever and they can straighten out their huts.
