Not only movie stars can be late. Real stars seem to forget time a bit as well – and no relation to Einstein’s space-time magic.
The comet so much expected seems to have misread its star maps and showed up late and not over Bethlehem, Israel, but over Malibu, California. It is an astounding sight, and so I take it as a New Year’s greeting. Many people, and many of them stars, prefer to go to California to other places. And, you know, word of mouth can go a long way. Maybe even to the stars.
