I'm often reminded that my affinity for extreme subtlety may render my communications completely opaque rather than cleverly coy. This is my own damn fault, I realize, and this is what seems to have happened with the fortune cookie post (either that, or there's just a general lack of interest amongst my readership).
So let's try this. On Saturday, Dr. M and I participated in our third Berkeley Photo Scavenger Hunt. One of the topics was "I've got good news and bad news." This was our entry.
(Note that it's important to realize from whose perspective the news is being received. Hint: In a constitutional sense, he or she does not yet exist.)
