The hotel address was listed as 24th and M street. If it had been listed as "Somewhere along the Yellow- Brick Road," I may have reconsidered the decision to stay there. After the end of the meeting, a cab was due to arrive at the hotel. It was 20 min late. I checked with the concierge and there he said there is some "to do" today in the area. Thinking of Nathan's modus operandi, I grabbed a cam in my bag and went outside to investigate. Lo and behold, there was the Wicked Witch of the West feverishly texting (?tweeting) on her Blackberry to her winged gremlins---"Abort the abduction of Dorothy, there is something curiously ASKEW."
