"Ride'n da Rails"
While roaming the city this afternoon I saw the Transit cops taking down a kid for fare beating. Okay he wasn't a choirboy, but then again he wasn't Dillinger either. He was screaming, and cussing the cops, and the cops was cussing him.
Well one cop was. A very pissed off lady cop. In fact I thought it was a gang fight till I saw it was just these two going at it verbally.
Aw crap things are getting worse around here.
This country is going south fast. Like I said a while ago the heat is busting folks for little stuff. Sneaking onto trains, shoplifting, and our old favorite stealing food from super markets. Heck I can remember when it used to be money.
I dunno maybe it's the heat'n humidity. It's been hot, and sticky in the Emerald City for a while here. On the other hand I also saw a skunk, and a chicken playing jazz at the next station.
I think I see why folks from other countries are so attracted to this place. America is still the Greatest Show on Earth.
