Good Friday
April 10, 1998

Saturday morning scene, 7:30 a.m., driving to help Erin with her move from rent to mortgage payments in Baltimore. They found him on the sidewalk, face up and purple. Old men, mothers and young children all came out whether barefoot or in stockinged feet to see the white-gloved ballet of urban corpse removal. Does anybody know who this man is? Barrabas! Who after his release wandered lonely and guilt-ridden 2,000 years before calling it quits in Baltimore, as so many had done before.
