by Doug Mataconis

Is summed up in these four paragraphs:

“He’s been standing in front of his house waiting for his car and driver,” laughed Breaux from the makeup chair, adding with a tinge of a low-country twang, “He’s learning how to hail a cab.”

“I haven’t paid for lunch in 30 years,” he joked
