Excerpt from "Static from balloons":

There is an old joke about a guy flying in a hot air balloon over the countryside.  He sees someone standing on a field and shouts, “Where am I?” The landlubber responds with precise latitudinal and longitudinal information as well as wind speed. The balloonist shouts back, “You must be a lawyer, because I’m sure that information is accurate but it doesn’t do me any good at all.”  The guy on the ground responds, “You must be a client, because I’m standing here minding my own business, I answer your question correctly, and now suddenly all of your problems are my fault.”
