      Man, I miss Lawrence. I just don't see that sort of stuff when I look out my window.

        I always liked the funk parade. A bunch of hippies would dance around a guy pushing a boombox in a shopping cart blasting funk.

          The crazed preacher who was always around Wescoe/Stauffer-Flynt in the 80s and 90s, exhorting students to repent and quit their sinful lives. He'd take any pranksters on. I think his key was to not listen to what was said and just keep braying as loudly as he could.

            We still get Brother Jed every now and then. Crazy preacher from Columbia, MO.

            There's an end of the world preacher out there now. I got a picture of him, will upload it later.

                Any one else remember the crazy Indian dude (SlurpeeĀ® not casino) in the 90s, that would walk around Lawrence all day with a parasol, sleep in Wescoe and write chalk messages on the sidewalks in the middle of the night?

                I enjoyed reading his rants on the way to class.

                  I miss working in Strong. I'm way the hell over at McCollum now, no windows. A freaking A-Bomb could destroy everything on Jayhawk Boulevard and I'd never know it.

                    Brother Jed is hilarious. How people would get worked up over him is beyond me.

                      What's this AMO bullshit? I thought we decided on QTW or some shit.

                        That was none other than T.S. David, who was a KU grad student for many years, studying English. I met him and knew him briefly enough to know a few details. Yes, he had been through a harsh divorce, which apparently ruined his mind to some extent. His daughter was married and lived in Ottawa, KS. I know this because I worked at Days Inn at 23rd and Iowa in the early 1990s. David would stop there on his WALK to and from Ottawa -- EVEN IN THE BONE-CHILLING WINTER. Yes, you read that right. This crazy dude woud WALK TO AND FROM OTTAWA WHEN THE TEMPERATURE WAS ZERO DEGREES. He'd stop at Days Inn because we'd let him have free hot chocolate. He also liked to talk about how a person could live in Lawrence for 25 cents a day. (Details available on request.)

                        I saw him ask a question at a William Burroughs symposium at Woodruff Auditorium, which was a thinly veiled opening for him to denouce Burroughs' sexuality and further to denounce all women who do not remain sexually faithful to their spouses.

                        I liked the guy, but he was intense and some sort of extra-planetary brand of crazy.
