Zabars' Most Wanted

A while back, I saw a woman on Michigan Avenue, near Oak Street, who looked exactly like Donald Rumsfeld. Then, more recently, I saw a woman lower down on Michigan who resembled Al Sharpton as much as any woman could. I pity them both. But Esther Kustanowitz of the blog My Urban Kvetch has surpassed me in weird near-sightings: she spotted an Osama Bin Laden clone on 86th and West End. Too funny. And, now that I think of it, reminiscent of the Seinfeld in which Kramer and George discover that the owner of a double-parked car they've been waiting to move was, in fact, Saddam Hussein.
