Ha, ha. Perhaps subconsciously Baron reminds me of how barren is the heart of one who only seeks wealth and power.

I have never heard of Daniil Kharms. I can barely read English, let alone Russian. I Googled him. What a tragic life. No wonder he looked so mean in all his photos. I just read a few of his short stories. They are similar to this one. Except even weirder. And oddly entertaining. I do wonder if they lose something in translation.

Thanks, Malcolm.
