Day 7: 1st of what I expect to be many encounters with police... If you look comfortable and vulnerable... you are a target...

Make no mistake, this was a very nice young officer.  Truly.  Nice young man, smart, professional, human, decent.

...And, doing what those of means, who ultimately pay his salary want, keep those without means... out of the way.  And, to his credit, he did that as reluctantly and sparingly as he could.

My bad.  I should have realized I was being too comfortable... two hours on the edge of a low traffic sidewalk working on computer, gathering late afternoon fusion energy, air-drying, out of view, my rotting feet.

Had I been more alert, not sure what I'd have done differently... moved after an hour probably.

Lesson learned. 

Maryland does NOT LIKE BIKES!  Maybe it is the same with all states, but surely rural Maryland.  OK in elitest, liberal communities, maybe.

Familiarity, in this sick society. does in deed, breed contempt.

In Jesus' day, too.
