Brother Paul

"Hallelujah!" says the cabbie as we climb in. The car interior is papered with bumper stickers saying "Jesus changed my life for GOOD!" and "Jesus is the light of the world!" He's swerved across three lanes of traffic to get to us, and he spends the rest of our trip back to Brooklyn regaling us with tales of the many fares he's enjoyed.

He has a camera with pictures of his favorite fares that he calls his "Wall of Fame," which he uses to photograph us, and then he turns it to video, while he makes Katie repeat the statement she made earlier about how he's the "Fred Astaire of cabbies," and he laughs and laughs.
