This story would have been too good not to tell even if it didn't happen. That it is a true account just underscores the accuracy of social commentary in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (the book series): "There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened." You clearly had witnessed that phenomenon in action!Your writing is excellent. Thank you for sharing it!

I was relieved when two reputable New York media sources confirmed it. While we're in this weird realm: you know how something can occur to you that hasn't crossed your mind in so long that you wonder why it popped into your head? Yesterday that happened with the story about the Ford--and today here it is bracketed by your comments. Thanks again!
