I focused on the words some idiot/comedian wrote on this white painted area on the wall: NO DIRTY HIPPIES. I risked blurring his face to get the message that was written, for you see, the place is full of nothing BUT! I had smelled a famliar "burning leaf" odor, and it trailed back to this guy. Sure, he said it was clover, but, well, who am I to specify herbs? Then I saw the sign, AND him, with his hippified dread locks and glazed expression. He was so sweet, too, to pose for me, and I thought he was darling - young, havng fun. The irony was too priceless to leave undocumented. The writing's on the wall: No Dirty Hippies! And that's why I put it in this category.
