Scripture of the Day: If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. — 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

The Mystery Camerawoman Click to enlarge.
Yesterday afternoon, I noticed a woman operating a news video camera. She was positioned on the sidewalk in front of my office and had her camera pointed as you see in this image. I intended to approach her and ask her what she was doing, but a client entered my office, and by the time the client left, the camerawoman had gathered her equipment and was loading it into an SUV. The SUV had no markings on it of any sort. I shall solve this mystery and report my findings.
