2. Heard off the Street is part of the Customs and Cultures in America series. It describes aspects of our behavior that are, charitably speaking, strange and for most of the stories, very funny. If you have a sense of the absurd, you will want to read them all. That said, I ask for your patience. I have taken these reports off the blog for a while to add more reports and fold them into the present set of reports. Thank you!
