Editors, Vineyard Gazette:

Wow, did I wake up on a different Island? I haven’t hitchhiked much in the last several years but . . . 46 cars before a pick up outside up-Island Cronigs? Adult male, fairly harmless-looking, L.L. Bean shorts and polo shirt, leaning on a cane, clear visibility, very safe pull-off space.

When you ride alone you ride with Bin Laden.
