If you're wondering where my previous blog about freedom really came from, I can tell you that it sprang from a discussion I was having with Consuela (my Tejana maid) the other night. I had just airily declared that "There's nothing I couldn't do if I put my mind to it."
"Oh yeah?" Consuela said in reply. "Try slamming a revolving door!"
Y'know, sometimes I could cheerfully strangle her - she can be too damn clever by half.
