Halfway through the story was this section, under a subhead that read: A VISIT FROM MAGIC. "It's not as if there haven't been Olympic highlights. Magic Johnson came into the club the other night. Everyone declared Johnson a 'perfect gentleman,' which translates as he was low key, didn't drink too much, kept his hands to himself and spent scads of money."
