The Eyes Have It
by Ted Casablanca
Keanu Reeves, chugging along on a clunking Honda motorcycle in Evanston, Illinois. Appeared jumpy and restless at a red light in the posh Chicago suburb. K.R. sported slick suedelike pants, a flaming red shirt and no helmet--apparently not a no-no in those parts. If you really want a fright, get this: Keanu openly asks for "8-ball" when he feels like a pick-me-up. Don't buckle your chastity belts, virtuous readers, it's just a tacky malt liquor, Olde English 800.
