Later, when I moved into a homeless veteran's shelter in Inglewood, Don would visit and pontificate on his favorite subject: Bush is the devil.
Since this was a shelter that housed only U.S. military veterans and veterans tend to lean to the right politically, Don's vitriolic tirades against our Commander In Chief weren't received happily, but they were received, because although Don was not an affiliate of our fraternity of warriors, he was a card-carrying member of our brotherhood of the street.
And so, Don was adopted by many of the 500 veterans housed at that shelter, which came in handy when he was arrested for having $26,000 in unpaid parking tickets and needed some help getting out of jail. We got him off with community service at the shelter, which consisted mostly of watching TV in our day room.
I think I've captured the gypsy wunderkind of Don in the above video. Forget the lack of plot and bad editing in the little video. Can you smell the vitamin C?
