She walked into my office on legs as long as one of those long-legged birds that you see in Florida - the pink ones, not the white ones - except that she was standing on both of them, not just one of them, like those birds, the pink ones, and she wasn&apos;t wearing pink, but I knew right away that she was trouble, which those birds usually aren&apos;t. <br />
  6. 6. Towards the dragon&apos;s lair the fellowship marched -- a noble human prince, a fair elf, a surly dwarf, and a disheveled copyright attorney who was frantically trying to find a way to differentiate this story from &quot;Lord of the Rings.&quot; <br />
  7. 7. On a fine summer morning during the days of the Puritans, the prison door in the small New England town of B----n opened to release a convicted adulteress, the Scarlet Letter A embroidered on her dress, along with the Scarlet Letters B through J, a veritable McGuffey&apos;s Reader of Scarlet Letters, one for each little tyke waiting for her at the gate. <br />
