A SAVAGE BEAST AT 7TH AND MONTANA ...!

  

They say that music has charms to soothe the savage beast ... and perhaps that explains the behavior of a Suspicious Music Aficionado in our midst this morning at 7th and Montana.  The Aficionado-in-Question -- a man in his early forties with all the glazed-over, semi-catatonic charm of a Zombie -- seemed intent on treating the crowd to an impromptu concert.  Shortly after 10:00 a.m., he meandered his way up 7th Street, set-up a Beach Chair on the sidewalk near Starbucks and began playing an eclectic selection of World Music from a Battered Boom Box on his lap.  As he rocked back and forth in his chair, I couldn't help noticing that he was sitting directly under a Neighborhood Watch sign which reads:  "We immediately report all SUSPICIOUS PERSONS and activities to our Police Dept. ...!"

Anyone who hangs out on a corner blasting music from a boombox should be required to dance, too. --Cin
