    Spread face up on a table. Suggestive of darkness, evil, power, deception. Which three?

    Not bad. I'd go with realtor, lawyer, and car salesman, though it's hard to argue with the Lucas selection.

    Hmm... that is a thought.

    It's for potential book cover art. Business cards aren't going to work.

    Use 5 cards, then. Pair of aces, pair of eights, last card face down.

    They wouldn't have the same appeal to my audience. Plus the card deck is the Army aircraft recognition training aid - relevant to the book.

    Yeah that is a possibility but I don't want the cover to be too busy.

    Are there two Jokers in a deck?
    If so, then Joker, Joker, and the third one face down so you see whatever neat airplane art is on the back side of the cards?

    ...The next day was hanging day the sky was overcast and black
    Big Jim lay covered up killed by a penknife in the back
    And Rosemary on the gallows she didn't even blink
    The hanging judge was sober he hadn't had a drink
    The only person on the scene missing was the Jack of Hearts...
    Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts; Bob Dylan

    Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
    You been out ridin' fences for so long now
    Oh, you're a hard one
    I know that you got your reasons
    These things that are pleasin' you
    Can hurt you somehow
    Don't you draw the Queen of Diamonds, boy
    She'll beat you if she's able...
    Desperado; The Eagles

    ...Playing for the high one, dancing with the devil,
    Going with the flow, it's all a game to me,
    Seven or Eleven, snake eyes watching you,
    Double up or quit, double stake or split,
    The Ace Of Spades...
    Ace of Spades; Motörhead.

    Y’know, everyone rags on Lucas, but in all fairness he should get credit for being an inventor. After all, he created the intermittent wiper...

    ANY kinds of cards?

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    darkness, evil, power, deception


    Rose: probably would be in the HOF except for gambling on the game. Destroyed another player's career in an All Star Game.

    Wynn: in the HOF. Asked about knocking down his own mom, "I would, if she were crowding the plate."

    Cobb: also HOF. Might be the best player of all time, and the most hated. Filed his spikes extra sharp so he could really do damage to infielders when sliding into the bag.
