The Layabout's Tale
All those people just hanging out in the middle of the day… who are they? It is the indispensable job of the reportorial class to actually find answers to questions the rest of us pose idly. Chris Colin does just that over in the Chronicle.
Unrepresentative, but awesome, quote:
“John,” who is 18 and was strolling through Yerba Buena Gardens one Thursday morning, laid out his typical itinerary: “Watch the grass grow, get high, hit on the ladies.”
How does he pay rent? “If you ask 100 girls for $10, that’s $1,000, that’s rent,” he explained logically.
