Where else, but on a city bus, would I have overheard a disheveled hobo discuss the merits of GPS-based surveillance systems? Where else would I have also heard said hobo issue, with his very next breath, a warning not to masturbate in public, for fear of being arrested by an off-duty police officer? Where else would I have heard this philosopher of the streets wax poetically about bygone days, when fortified liquor seemed to have a little more kick? Where else would I have heard this grizzled Renaissance Man lament the scourge of rap music for keeping Johnny Cash’s gnarled twang off the airwaves.

Where else, but on a city bus?
