THE STRAWMAN COMETH ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the Strawman, an Anonymous Fashion Plate who made the scene at 7th and Montana recently wearing what looked like a large straw basket or lampshade on his head. "Holy Toledo," I said, "I haven't seen this much straw on someone's head since the Wizard of Oz. If he only had a brain, he'd know his hat was at least four sizes too big for his head!" Between his hat (which obscured his entire face) and his iPod (which was running at full blast), the Strawman was completely oblivious to his surroundings. How, I wondered, can someone like this function in society? The whole thing made me want to take a Strawman Poll: Should this Scarecrow-on-Steroids be allowed to drive a car ...?!?

He may be autistic, check to see if he's had vaccinations.

Good to see ya, Marty. I have to be honest, a guy like that would have made me a little nervous. I'd have checked for vaccinations AND weapons of mass destruction!

Although from different places, but this perception is consistent, which is relatively rare point!
