"And there is the account of the hanging of three men...and a scuba diver and a suicide...There are stories of coincidence and chance and intersections and strange things told and which is which and who only knows...and we generally say, "Well if that was in a movie I wouldn't believe it." Someone's so and so met someone else's so and so and so on -- And it is in the humble opinion of this narrator that these strange things happen all the time...and so it goes and so it goes and the book says, "We may be through with the past, but the past is not through with us." -Ricky Jay, "Magnolia"
