photo 6: steely dan at the chicago theater

You snoozed you loosed jazz/rock fusion fans. Steely Dan was sold out at the Chicago Theater. Didn't get your ticket? Look for Steely Dan in the sun visor CD holder of any 60 year old man on your block.

I'll tell you what superpower I want. I want the power to fall asleep when I need to go to bed. It's not a problem every night, but every few weeks I hit the toss 'n' turn rut. Ninety minutes of sleep in a night doesn't cut it. Today I walked through downtown like Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver. I didn't shave my hair into a mohawk or save a child prostitute with a spray of bullets, but my brusque and curt replies to the flotsam in the office e-mail inbox were more brusque and curt than usual.
