Media An Attentive Reader

Down the street at Guaymas I was just eating a taco and noticed someone at another table reading the new issue of The Stranger very intently. Whatever he was reading, he was really into it. Couldn’t help but wonder. Figured it wasn’t the book section because, well, doesn’t everyone just flip right past the book section? After a while I decided it must be Savage Love—this week: porn addicts and swim-cap fetishists—because it was toward the back of the book and, well, I’m not licking anyone’s ass to say that when you come across someone reading The Stranger, they’re usually reading Savage Love.
Although it could have been something else, too… Drunk of the Week? (He could just be a very slow reader.) Free Will Astrology? (Lots of people wanna know what’s going to happen to them.) Party Crasher? (Who doesn’t love Party Crasher?)
Finally I got up to refill my soda. Here’s what he was reading:
Yes! The book section!
