To the Erudite Magpie-ing Cow Bird who takes my New York Times,
Thank you for teaching me that the early bird gets the worm and everything else anyone wants.
I confess, I didn't know that this was right. I am in no position to judge if by the laws of nature I forfeit my New York Times if I work late and sleep in on a weekend morning.
This is not least the case since I don't have even the minimal edification afforded by access to, well, the New York Times.
Who can match your infinite wisdom and the clear might of your early-morning prowl?
