"Sister, listen,

I've got some good news.
He is not going to have to stand trial.
He's being transferred to McNeil Island.
Tomorrow morning.
To begin serving a ten-year sentence.
That means he'll be eligible for parole in only twenty months."

Twenty candles on a cake.
Twenty Camels in a pack.
Twenty months in a federal pen.
Twenty shots of tequila down a young girl's gullet.
Twenty centuries since Our Lord's last pratfall,
and after all that time we still don't know where passion goes when it goes.

Tom Robbins
"Still Life with Woodpecker"
