    The most profound characteristic of Western Europe in the Middle Ages was its cultural and religious unity, a unity secured by a common alignment with the Pope in Rome and a common language - Latin - for worship and scholarship. The Reformation shattered that unity, and the consequences are still with us today.

    Peppard and Jarman have a new grift that seems simple enough: Go to the airport. Imitate a hired driver by copying a name that they see in the crowd. Collect the passenger before the real driver does, take him to a secluded area, and rob him. It seems to be a simple enough plan to make some quick dishonest cash for these two amateurs - that is, until they finally meet someone who may be a pro.
