The new mystery.

The Piano Man's fifteen minutes of fame are over. It's time for the Unknown Woman:
She appeared from nowhere on a rain-tossed morning, sitting naked on the shoreline, unable to speak.

Now she sits in a hospital bed, staring into space, mute and expressionless, her charts naming her simply as “Unknown”.

The mysterious appearance of the Western woman, aged between 35 and 45, last week beside the runway of a disused airport has put Hong Kong authorities in a bind, the police chief handling the unusual case said on Wednesday.

“We’ve tried interpreters in many different languages and sign-language experts but none of them appear to get though to her,” chief inspector Victor Ng told reporters.

Hi Ann: Off Topic Post NEWS RE: credit bureaus Experian, Equifax and TransUnion are working together

I promised to keep you updated.

I spoke with Don Girard, the media manager for Experian just a few minutes ago.

He mentioned that he's going to have an official press release mid next week.

He mentioned that the scope of the problem was actually four states, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

The big three credit bureaus Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion have a huge task but are working together as a 'single unit' to help the Hurricane Katrina crisis victims. I'm not sure if this is unprecedented or not.

Anyway, my post has more details of the conversation between myself and Don Girard of Experian.

I like the headline in the article:
Mystery woman in Hong Kong rivals 'piano man'

It sounds like an MTV Celebrity Death Match. "Tonight we have Hong Kong Mystery Woman versus German Piano Man. Who will win this super showdown of silent celebrity-seekers?"

It's a midseason reality show on Fox called "Mystery Patient." The producers drop the contestants off on random beaches around the world. The one who lasts the longest wins a guest judging appearance on Swedish Idol. If you convince the doctors to apply electro-shock treatment, you also win a minicooper. There's 3 more still to turn up.

That one isn't mine. One I am working on is tentively called "Refugee, Me?" When a disaster strikes, I'll drop off 5 contestants in the middle of ground zero. They must race to the Red Cross site to be named later. Along the way they can pick up bonus points by being identified in the press as a looter (2 pts), a finder (4 pts), being pushed out of the way by Geraldo (10 pts), getting FEMA money (20 pts), tearfu cover story in People magazine (40 pts), Oprah gives them a hug (100 pts). Contestant will be disqualified if "rescued" by Sean Penn. Hope to have a development deal in place by next hurricane season.

Call me.

How long before they give her a sketch pad and her choice a musical instruments?

Seeking the isle of Lesbos, perhaps....

In cases like this I think it's always safest to blame Courtney Love.
