I am a Texan living in Chicago. In other words...a stranger in a strange land.
I'm a prosecutor, so my day-to-day is pretty well encapsulated in this line from the movie Magnolia: "Sometimes people need a little help. Sometimes people need to be forgiven. And sometimes they need to go to jail. And that's a very tricky thing on my part...making that call."
UPDATE: I'm back in Texas now. Me and everybody else.
