Locals say farewell to Ma

News—————3 May 2011

The entire community gathered the evening of May 3rd to say goodbye to local man, Julian Ma, as he finalizes preparation to relocate out west.  For months, Ma has regaled the community with stories of the wonders of his southern California destination.  “You need to carry a sack with you at all times,” Ma was overheard telling his neighbor, “on account of all the gold nuggets you find just laying by the side of the road.”  “I hear all the ladies in California are interested in meeting smart and ambitious young men,” Ma added as he smoothed the lapels of his new traveling jacket.  Several of his friends commented that they do not share Ma’s enthusiasm for the grand claims of the wonder of California living.  “I hope he writes and tells us he arrived safely,” said one of Ma’s dinner companions. “I’m not sure who was filling his head with those crazy stories.”  Ma was last seen riding in the sidecar of a motorcycle, heading west down K street.  The driver of the motorcycle was not identified.
