Living in DC for many years we have grown accustomed to the plight of the Homeless. In DC this was mainly caused by psychiatric hospital closing down, declaring all those inside sane, and releasing many poor souls onto the streets of our nation's capital. Hell, the majority of us here at LSWTF.com know the homeless outside of Kelly's Irish Times very well.
Houston though is another matter all in itself. Many are refugees from Katrina, and others are crack heads and other forms of vagabonds. Not all are as good natured as the DC homeless. Now I don't care what you call them be it homeless, street urchins, hobos, housing and cleanliness challenged, creepy or anything else, all my experiences never prepared me for the homeless man CityCat and I ran into this morning as we went to dinner.
We parked at Barnaby's Cafe to meet some of CityCat's fellow future lawyers who are trying to keep their sanity before the BAR test this week. As we exited a car we were met with a serenade of Hotel California. We were then told we just experienced the Notorious Bum, the you tube sensation. Originally from Portland, Oregon...allegedly...this of course caught my attention and I had to come home and look this poor bastard up.
I urge you now not to begin drinking anything as it is likely to impale itself onto your monitor/keyboard. For right now I bring to you straight from the Wendy's drive thru, the Notorious B.u.M.
