The Man in Black Dies at 71

Providence 2 AM. The guy in tails and leather pants styling. US kills 8
Iraqi Police in Mistake. The Man in Black Dies at 71. Shrieking gaggles
of females. Motorcycle roar, sound of broken bottle kicked over cement.
Shouted obscenities ubiquitous. Explosions of cruel laughter. A ringing
of outdoor tables dragged inside. Ghostly music from cars. Dramatic per
cussive incident outside Paragon, bouncers involved. Car runs over beer
can clanking. Black netherworld overseen by parked police cruisers. All
