CRAIG'S CATCH-22  —  Following up on David's post below on what Craig 'did', I have to imagine this was one of those catch-22s that Craig really had no way out of.  I'm going to assume for the sake of the discussion that the gestures Craig is described as making are ones easily recognizable as soliciting sex.
