That Must Have Been a Memorable Staff Retreat

Just another random mental image from the subway...

Coming home on the subway, I was sitting across from a guy who could have passed for Paul McCartney. Seriously. The only thing that made me realize that it wasn't the ex-Beatle, was that I was on the subway, and he was headed to Bay Ridge.

He was reading Carl Hiassen's Nature Girl.

But what struck me most was his tote bag, issued by the Office of English Language Learners, which bore the inscription:

"There is no I in Team"
OELL Staff Retreat
September 10-11, 2001
That just struck me as a heck of a memento from what must have been a very memorable retreat.
