I was born in Babylonia, Moved to Arizona.

I'm in the Middle East now. A land of Sheiks and souks and mystery and intrigue. Where a girl costs less than a cigarette, and a boy costs less than a girl. I'm here in search of the bird, that's right, the black bird. Kemidov had it last in Istanbul, but he bungled things and the Fat Man absconded with it. Then, of course, the Paloma caught fire, the fools, the bloody fools. And now we are here.

LOL! When you have a good connection (can you get a good connection while looking for a... cigarette... in Babylon?), you may appreciate this:

It won't help you find the bird but it might save you a trip to the Middle East the next time you're hankering for a look at it. ;)



P.S. Have a wonderful trip.
