A tall strong blonde woman just frightened the sidewalk screaming obscenities, leaning straight ahead and straining into her screams, showing us every cord in her throat, threatening an unseen other woman named Ewelina. Everyone stopped and looked and was glad she kept moving. The invisible Ewelina had better be strong and fast or far away, because this raging woman looks as if she would tear a man in half just to get to her. And now she has disappeared, but still screaming, into the alley behind the Catholic bookstore and the supposedly Irish pub. If her quarry is back there, her quarry will die there.
