Jae Song sent this cellph portrait, taken on the sidewalks of New York, from his new phone cam . . . sometime in 2004, I believe.
Jae rolled into town yesterday for his annual Dream Thanksgiving Vacation In Vegas. We had a great meal at Mon Ami Gabi then headed straight for the poker room at Planet Hollywood. We sat down at a no-limit table for four or five hours, during which time I made $45 and Jae made $50. Not what you'd call a killing but way better than losing. Picking up some beer on the way home, we felt that we were getting it for free, since it was bought with ill-gotten gambling funds, lifted from the friendly folks we played with. It tasted better than cheap American beer has any right to taste.
