Robert the Dancing Man has begun his annual visit to the streets of our fine town. His specialty is interpreting lovers' quarrels through dance. A quick scan of local church bulletins and Robert has enough material to carry him through Friday. He'll spend all week leaping across the car hoods, acting out the sobbing, the passion, the accusations, and the betrayal of popular power couples throughout the inland neighborhoods. Come next weekend, a chartered row boat will sail him past the lake front properties so that even the mighty may be shamed.

It is hoped that such focus and exposure will stir up business for the therapy and steak house district which typically sees a lull this time of year.

If you're in town, ask to see Robert's face tattoo. But don't give him any money.
