If a tree falls...plus a new quote of the week!

If I am sitting outside a Starbucks using their free wi-fi but haven't bought anything to eat or drink, is it stealing?

What if I am sitting inside the Starbucks?

And now, the quote:

Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint on the broken glass.
--Anton Chekhov

And with that, he shows-not-tells, beautifully, why "show-not-tell" is so effective. The broken glass, especially. Love that.
