      Truly the unluck had been visited upon him.

      With a look of amusement on your face you ask me if I believe in luck. I fumble around for an answer, but the question stays with me as I venture out into the chill of the afternoon. It's not luck I believe in, but unluck. I have seen unluck in many guises.
