Deal I'm looking at a photograph. In it I'm visiting someone else's hotel room. It's Cleveland I think. Or maybe Columbus? It's maybe five or six years ago. I won't tell you what I'm doing in the photo, or what went on after the shutter closed. I will say that when I look at this photo, a satisfied smile comes over my face. There's a reason someone has rented the room, and a very different reason for why I'm there. Everything in this life is a transaction in one way or another, the only question is how many of the people involved think they got the better deal.
