Rise Guy

I was out and about in the village tonight and ran into Jason whooping it up at the Chinese takeout. He was ecstatic over winning the regular season scoring title in the Ultimate Matzoh Balls League, where he is a wiry, three-point shooting point guard for the Forest Hills Unleaveneds.

I asked him the secret of his success. "As Robert Louis Stevenson and Art Lowenstein always say, Thom," he said, "life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a bad hand well."
