Gonzo di Dottore [Ed.: He's not a real doctor. Or Italian.] is a noted author, poet, photographer and bon vivant. Or was that savant? It's hard to tell sometimes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high-powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die

Here’s a fun fact about being a self-employed whatever the hell I am. To get business, you have to publish your contact info.  You publish your contact info and people call you. Some of the people that are inclined to call you are batshit crazy.

It’s not always obvious.

Karma: Sometimes, it is.

Like when some guy starts talking like he knows you. And spends an hour on the phone. And tells you about Uncle Ronnie’s house near San Diego. And about the per acre cost of a subdivided lot. And international conspiracies involving the noted gangster he wants you to sue…

And, by the way, he does not have a job, or other income. He’s going on Medicaid.  But (I swear, man!)he’s got legal funding companies lined up to pay whatever it costs.

FWIW, in a related matter, he’s been determined to be incompetent to stand trial.

FYI, your mailman is watching you. Tracking who gets mail at your house. Maybe even logging the cars in your driveway.

I’m guessing he’d report on what he could see through the windows, if by chance it was noteworthy.

Somewhere in a cubicle, this information gets processed and dispersed. I know this, because the county assessor has “reason to believe” I don’t reside in my own home and wants to increase my taxes. That’s been cleared up, but what the fuck?  Where is Charlie, the mailman when I was a kid.  The guy who would stop and chat, and take a glass of lemonade in the summer. What happened to that guy?

Merica:  Referring to a Saturday NFL broadcast as Saturday night football simply isn’t good enough. It’s “Thursday Night Football: Saturday Edition.” (Woooo!!! Branding!!!) This is why nobody likes the suits up in marketing. Must I now wear my “Casual Friday khakis: the Saturday Morning version” blue jeans to “First Saturday Cars and Coffee: the one week later and with Red Bull instead edition” show?
