Two Questions, No Answers
“Here’s a couple questions,” Bernie said. “One – did Ezra Printz know how to fly a plane? Two – did he have mental problems?”
Portia, Trimmer and Freddie all looked at one another. Two questions – and two’s a number I can handle – but their meaning zipped right by me. I did have a memory of that wrecked old biplane in the box canyon, the box canyon where we found a film can, the film can with film in it. And somewhere else we’d found another film can, the one with the Martin Ramirez painting inside. All of a sudden I thought of this baseball player with dreads that Bernie likes to watch – Manny Ramirez. How confusing was that?
“What the point of these questions?” Freddie said.
“The point is,” Bernie said, “that whoever gives us the answers gets a break. The other two go down.”
“A break like walking out of here?” Freddie said.
Bernie laughed. The laugh is the best human sound, and Bernie’s is tops. I just listened.
Answer for Mollypop: Yes, there will be Kindle for Thereby Hangs A Tail. Admin is very curious about how many people are reading for pleasure on Kindle.
