Riding shotgun with the Prince of Darkness


Heading up Highway 101 last week en route to a buddy’s wedding, I found myself behind this beast of a truck. Traffic was moving freely, so I lived dangerously for about five minutes as I inched closer and closer before snapping a photo and then dropping back. Satan, as I learned after reading Henry Ansgar Kelly’s diabolical biography of the one he deems a very misunderstood villain, comes from the Hebrew Ha-Satan, the one who accuses. (Trust me, you won’t like the book.) In Spanish, el diablo could also be el satan, but maybe the truck belongs to this guy, an artist, not the Prince of Darkness.
