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

Fellini-esque moment

I was leaving the house to do my Thursday night "rounds."

"Hey, there's something in the squirrel trap!" Now before all my bleeding heart liberal friends think I've gone to the dark side, it's a live trap. I remove the squirrel to various neighborhoods.

Tonight, though, no squirrel. A rat. 2nd one this week, and third in a month. This is after 20+ years of setting squirrel traps. Never before has anything like this happened.

So I'm walking down the alley in the Central District, my rat in a cage, wearing my clerical collar, and trying to juggle things to talk to my wife on a cell phone.

hehehehehe. The people driving down the alley were staring, driving very slowly.
