These recent political “deals” worry me. I’m reminded of a story in Martin Cruz Smith’s “The Girl from Venice.”
A bartender tells of a regular who is given a python by a friend.
“How is that working out for you?” he asks.
“Great, no trouble, sleeps all the time, even curls up with me in my bed. Last night though – the oddest thing. I woke up and he was lying straight, right along side of me.”
Never miss a local story.
The barman’s eyes spring wide. “Get out of the house. Get out now! He’s measuring you.”
