Headhunters and the quintessential college deans
were sure to be coming together : wearing masks
to disengage each other. 'Let's meet in New Hope,'
one said, 'it's a really nice place.' The man from
Indiana had a metropolitan guidebook and asked,
'Is it in here?' No one answered - the gargantuan
creeps who made up the pilgrimage were all Summer-off
teachers looking for something to do. 'Mecca for me is
a beer, thanks all the same.' Everyone tried laughing
as they looked at each other to see who was.
