Mark Young

A line from Octavio Paz

Pedestrians walk past the
former pop star who is wear-
ing a strapless yellow number
as she stares adoringly at her

gal pal. Troop levels remain
roughly constant; but there
is an upwards trend in the
theft of mobile phones &

an increasing number of
snowy days this year. The
White House says it’s like
eating apple crumble in an

honorary Marine Corps jacket.
Time recaptured. Baseball fans
still like their peanuts, but
her jewels stole center stage.
