Bus Report #839
Thanks to The Professor I had new music to listen to - the latest from Al Joshua, formerly of the fantastic Orphans & Vandals. And in the quiet dark it was so, so good.
Nothing bothered me as much as usual - not the creepy girl with the vacant look in her eye, the woman doing arm exercises on the bus, the wild-eyed man flashing his ID card at everyone and leering at the people sitting nearby him.
At Mission and 16th the cops had a woman handcuffed on the corner, four cops and two cars with flashing lights, just standing there. A heavy-set man wearing huge headphones snapped a photo.
Walking the rest of the way to work after getting my coffee I turned up the volume and listened to the last two new songs I hadn't heard yet. I slowed my pace so I could finish listening before getting to the office.
