 June 10       Abraxas       I was waiting for a magic person and then you appeared.  I was dazzled; I was under your spell.  In an attempt to prove myself your natural assistant I sawed me in two.  Then I stepped into the vanishing cabinet and promptly disappeared.  I was not wrong...

Watching a big drug bust downtown from my car. Latino-looking guy in a BMW. A uniform stopped him, but he was immediately surrounded by a phalanx of plainclothes fuzz, one wearing a balaclava. Then another copper arrives with a drug-sniffing mutt, who goes beserk over the car -- in & out all...
