One afternoon, nearly six years ago, at a backyard barbecue in Benicia, we got involved in a game of six-degrees one-upmanship. A girl was winding her way through some convoluted explanation of something or other when our friend simply says, "Well, we know Joe Strummer, and he knows Letterman, and Letterman knows everyone." Which, we suppose puts us three degrees from Danica Patrick, Buddy Rice and rookie Paul Dana, all of whom have two cars each entered in the Indy 500 under the aegis of Rahal-Letterman racing.
