Overheard at a Libety Fund Conference, in Key West:
1. During discussion, a very serious time:
Older gentleman: "I found this passage very insightful, or at least provocative. It describes [he describes what it describes, at a bit of length, though not inappropriately so. Description involves metaphor of piracy]"
Younger gentleman: "Oh, I underlined that, too! It said, 'pirates'! I LOVE pirates."
2. During walk, in afternoon:
Older gentleman, very cultured fellow: "Oh, look, I went into that museum last time I was in Key West, 20 years ago!"
Younger woman: "How was it?"
Older gentleman: "It was only a mild rip-off, making it perhaps the most worthwhile attraction on this island!"
