Restaurants are easy nowadays. It used to be you had to send whoever was lightest complected in to get a table and order, and then everybody else would hide their feathers under their blankets and sneak in and sit down. Now the only trouble you are likely to run into is when they don't allow smoking a peace pipe after the meal. You have to go outside to smoke. God bless Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.
