|BYRON ORLOK: "Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. I'd like to leave you with a little story to think about as you drive home through the darkness. Once upon a time, many years ago...there should be a pin spot while they see my face while I'm talking....once upon a time, many, many years ago, a rich merchant in Baghdad sent his servant to the marketplace to buy provisions. And after a while, the servant came back white-faced and trembling and said "Master, when I was in the marketplace, I was jostled by a woman in the crowd, and I turned to look, and I saw that it was Death that had jostled me. And she looked at me and made a threatening gesture! Oh, master, please lend me a horse that I may ride away from this city and escape my fate. I will ride to Sumara, and Death will not find me there. So, the merchant loaned him the horse, and the servant mounted it and dug his spurs into its flank and as fast as the horse could gallop, he rode towards Sumara. Then the merchant went to the marketplace, and he saw Death standing in the crowd. And he said to her, "Why did you make a threatening gesture to my servant when you saw him this morning?" And Death said, "I made no threatening gesture, that was..that was only a start of surprise. I was astonished to see him here in Baghdad, for I have an appointment with him tonight....in Sumara....."|
