Well, maybe.  2001 is probably a year, but might be a movie.  1984
is a book (and a movie, and a year, and a metaphor).  Chicago is a
font and an artist, unrelated.  Paris is a city in Texas.

We all make assumptions out of necessity, but we shouldn't be
too disappointed when they turn out to be wrong.

I marvel at the creature: so secret and         John Cowan
so sly as he is, to come sporting in the pool
before our very window.  Does he think that
Men sleep without watch all night?
