Caring for human beings seems like the best use of my time, homeless or not.

Dravus Street Bar, Hell, and Homeless

Every night something new.

Tonight a Jehovah Witness went after me for believing the Apostle's Creed. Always very interesting when a drunk gets up a full head of steam defending a faith they don't live.

By the time he left he was totally out of control -- his buddy got him out of the bar before he got 86ed.

Promised to drop off an AA meeting schedule and some anti-JW material, if I can find it. I won't convince him however, pretty sure.

Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own eyes.

Stopped by the Rainier Room at the Seattle Center -- 70 sleepers there in the cold weather. All is well. Why the heck do they need three workers to watch a room full of sleepers? I want a gig like that.
