To Talk About the Weather
People blame the full moon for odd behavior but all they have to look to is the weather. They'll always find a convenient excuse for craziness. Last week we baked in the heat while wandering around the city and every person we passed--walkers, cyclists, and drivers--was suffering from heat-induced road rage. Patience had melted. Then this week the heat blew off and idyllic summer weather landed, the kind of stuff people describe as "gorgeous" without exaggerating. You'd think people would return to normal, but now we're all furious that we're stuck inside working all day during the peak of summer weather.
