Outside the Missouri Bar and Grill

Outside the Missouri Bar and Grill last night on Tucker Boulevard, an angular street person, who carried his bedroll under his arm, stopped for a moment to ask a stranger a question: "Are you an outdoorsmen?" he asked. After the stranger replied "no," the homeless man walked down a darkened alley and disappeared into the night. A Cadillac SUV pulled up soon thereafter, double parking, as its passenger ran into the Chinese carry-out joint next to the bar.
