Diogenes sighting?

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Mar 31, 2003

A friend who is a policeman sends this note along:

"I pulled over a van three days ago while working, for going through a red light. When I saw the first name on the persons license I decided not to write him a summons. His name is Diogenes. The driver did know that Diogenes was a philosopher but seemed a bit confused when I asked him if he wrote for CWR. I thought I was going to find out who writes on the last page."
Unfortunately, the real identity of Diogenes is a closely guarded secret, I think mainly to keep angry bishops from knocking down his door and dragging him off for punishment.
