Max’s Journal 8/5/2014

By Max R. Weller

Read Elite Colorado unit nabs hundreds of parolees on the lam in first year in the Denver Post. The repeat sex offender below, with a criminal record dating back to 1974, is crying:

Man found on University Hill sidewalk died of drug OD, Boulder coroner rules according to this report in the Daily Camera. You mean the do-gooders couldn’t save him, with all of the millions and millions of $$$ they spend annually?

I actually visited the Main Branch of Boulder Public Library at 1001 Arapahoe last Wednesday. I found the newly renovated second floor to be spacious (enabling you to see what’s happening around you) and it was quiet, too! Given the rainy weather that day, I’d expected BPL to be crammed with the worst-behaved stinkers from Denver and elsewhere, hanging out there after leaving the nearby transient magnet known as Bridge House. This was NOT the case, which gives me a glimmer of hope for the future of our public library. I should visit again, soon, and also make note of conditions in adjacent Central Park.

Some weird homeless chick has been driving around Boulder Shelter for the Homeless very early in the morning for the past few weeks. This morning, as I was standing and waiting at the west entrance (which opens at 6AM), she parked in the Bustop Gentleman’s Club parking lot and asked me to sit in her car and wait. No. HELL NO. Why can’t these yahoos respect the fact that I’m a loner?

Tonight at my campsite: V-8 juice and cheese sandwiches, with coleslaw on the side.

      Max: Was, by chance, the homeless woman you describe driving a circa 1980 Toyota and did she have a face veil on? We have had such a character in Lyons for quite some time. Kinda scary – she covers her face with a white veil and lives out of her car.

      Also, can you shed light on what all those read and black plastic bottles are on the median on your corner? Energy drinks? Something else?

        No veil, and it’s domestic make of car. She uses the morning services at BSH, and has a grown son who is also homeless. I’m just wondering why she drives around the neighborhood early in the morning.

        I don’t know what those things are, nor who put them there, but they’re similar to Legos. I’ll have to bring my trash bag over to the corner . . .
