What I like is "Go to a bar if you need or want a drink". Right. Joe Homelessguy: "Hey, Jerry. Yeah, I made ten bucks flying my sign down on Irwin. You know, I'm going to write up a new one today. And this one won't have the word "work" on it. A couple guys actually offered me work. Anyhow, I feel like getting shitfaced now. Let's see, I could get a gallon of cheap vodka, some OJ, and still have enough left over for a Taco Bell Burrito SupremeŠ. OR, I could go down to Trevors Bar and get a couple of watered-down drinks from that fat, nasty byotch bartender who works there. Huh. Taco Bell Burrito SupremeŠ, washed down with a gallon of cheap vodka and some OJ, Mmmmm...

One time, when RICKY RAT had carved a little rat hole in the hills above San Rafael, he was down at the railroad tracks offa Lincoln. Drinking a cold Bud. On a hot day. And, who should come strolling up them tracks? Yep. Officer Jack Martin. Aka "The Silver Fox". And, he says to RICKY RAT "You know, RICKY, I could take you to jail now. Drinking in public and trespassing". And RICKY RAT, wisened by forty some odd years on the planet Earth, did not argue that point.

But, RICKY RAT was THINKING "Jeez. DON'T YOU HAVE ANYTHING BETTER TO DO THAN STROLL DOWN THE RAILROAD TRACKS OFFA LINCOLN, AND THEN TELL A GUY DRINKING A COLD BUD ON A HOT DAY THAT YOU COULD TAKE HIM TO JAIL??? FOR DRINKING IN PUBLIC AND TRESPASSING???"...

Dr AHEM Laurence Mazzota of Novato Hospital is a complete waste of human flesh, and is breathing air that, uh, would be put to better use by him not breathing it.

Well, yeah, someone could get you for libel. But, the thing is, it has to be UNTRUE to be libelous. And, with my above ^^^ comment, I'd defend the truthfulness of it all the way to the highest court in the land. The Supreme Rodent Revolutionary Council.

Because, in Article IV of the Sacred Scrolls, it CLEARLY states "Libel-Untrue, True-Not Libel". No, wait. I think Article IV says "Rodent shall not kill rodent"...

I'm glad that we're able to have this intelligent conversation about the homeless situation in San Rafael.

Back on topic. St. Vincents, the soup kitchen at 3rd & B, is damn good. Why, one time, RICKY RAT had broasted, or whatever, salmon there. With rice and whatnot.
