The Slice

Bank line trifecta

The line seemed to stretch from downtown to Airway Heights.

I should have known. Fridays are always busy. This is a Friday leading up to a long holiday weekend. And then there were people with first-of-the-month government checks.

But the wait gave me time to mull a few things. I concluded:

1. The late author/critic Cleveland Amory is another I could put on my list of those I've encountered while they were wearing a bathrobe. This was at a hotel next to the Grand Canyon 30 years ago. His animal rights group had organized a helicopter airlift of wild burros that the BLM was threatening to shoot.

2. I can never remember anything Betty Nguyen says.

3. It's a good bet that some "Game of Thrones" fans never stop saying "Winter's coming."
