      I feel like an indio, the rail road brought so much bad luck.

      Such a string of evil deeds is deemed too improbable to have occurred naturally, giving rise to rumors about a fatal Indian curse among those unwilling to recognize that chaos sometimes takes the form of coincidence. Randomness is disquieting; Indian curses are, in comparison, the lesser of the evils because they at least support the illusion that there is order in our universe. In this odd way, belief in predestined bad luck is comforting.

      Enjoy the rest of today, blessed to be alive.
