If David Copperfield performed magic like my kids perform “magic”

“Ladies and gentlemen, since the dawn of time, mankind has been fascinated with the art of illusion. Tonight, illusion gives way to an incredible reality as I will literally make this entire city block . . .disappear!

“Now, if you all will kindly turn around and close your eyes for a minute or two, when you open your eyes, this ENTIRE city block will have vanished! Turn around . . .no peeking . . are you peeking? I can’t do it if you’re peeking. I can still see part of your eyes through your fingers. I didn’t say cover your face, I said close your eyes. You’re definitely still peeking!”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
