Way out west there was this fella... Fella I wanna tell ya about. Fella by the name of Doug. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. Doug, he called himself “The Dude”. Now, “Dude” – that’s a name no one would selfapply where I come from. But then there was a lot about The Dude that didn’t make a whole lot of sense. And a lot about where he lived, likewise. But then again, maybe that’s why I found the place so darned interestin’.
They call Kingston the “City of Kings.” I didn’t find it to be that, exactly. But I’ll allow there are some nice folks there. Now, sometimes there’s a man... I won’t say a hero, ‘cause, what’s a hero? But sometimes, there’s a man. And even if he’s a lazy man – and The Dude was most certainly that. But sometimes, there’s a man. A man who, upon first glance, may not seem to fit in his time or place, or even circle of friends. A man who takes the wheel of that Chevy Suburban when his friends cannot. Sometimes, there’s a man who gets his friends exactly where they need to be. He’s the man for his time and place. Sometimes, there’s a man... Aw, hell. I’ve done introduced him enough.
