Bus Report #426

Is this a bad omen? On my way to the bus this morning I walked by a cat sleeping on the sidewalk. Only, I don't think it was asleep. Someone is going to have a very, very sad day today.

At Fillmore the only other people waiting in the bus stop were a trio of junkies/crackheads/chronic homeless or else just very severely damaged people. One man had plastic bags tied to his feet and no teeth and he keened back and forth on the bench. The woman stood perfectly still right next to him and didn't say a word. The other man smoked a cigarette, then ran into the street and either had a spasm of some kind, or a seizure. He ran back to the bench and sat down.
They tried to get my attention and sell me transfers, but I ignored them.
It was too early.
