Just an aside

AP today:
Zsa Zsa Gabor has been hospitalized after slipping out of consciousness at her Los Angeles-area home.
I love the image of "slipping out" of consciousness, as if it's a small, ice-covered island on which we have to continually balance ourselves. Poor Zsa Zsa slipped off the island and fell into unconsciousness, which is the frightening black sea that surrounds this particular island.

Who knows? Maybe that's the way it is.
