nobody is waiting yet

Here's a bit about Greg Packer (who has never owned a mac or iPod) and is first in line in New York City:

Packer has never met a microphone or notebook he didn't like, which is why he's usually standing at the head of any line where reporters are present. According to Packer's lengthy Wikipedia entry, he has been quoted more than 100 times in the news media — including The Times — as an ordinary citizen commenting on matters such as the death of Princess Diana and the appeal of Pope John Paul II to Jews.

He was first in line at the opening of the ground zero viewing platform in 2001 and first in the public line to greet President Bush in Washington after his 2001 inauguration.

from a LA Times article linked here

which mentions his wikipedia entry

The guy who is second in line does seem cool though

Artomatic For The People, 2017


“He is the old fisherman’s wife who wished for everything and sooner or later he will end up with nothing. The wife sitting in front of her hovel was poorer after her series of wishes, because she now owned not only her poverty but her mistakes and her destructive pride, because she might have been otherwise, but brought power and glory crashing down upon her, because she had made her bed badly and was lying in it.

The man in the white house sits, naked and obscene, a pustule of ego, in the harsh light, a man whose grasp exceeded his understanding, because his understanding was dulled by indulgence. He must know somewhere below the surface he skates on that he has destroyed his image, and like Dorian Gray before him, will be devoured by his own corrosion in due time too. One way or another this will kill him, though he may drag down millions with him. One way or another, he knows he has stepped off a cliff, pronounced himself king of the air, and is in freefall. Another dungheap awaits his landing; the dung is all his; when he plunges into it he will be, at last, a self-made man.” ―Rebecca Solnit

There were two good pieces of news today at the Civic Center Farmer's Market...

01 The Belgian Waffle stand is back (we missed it)!
02 They're using Hobo on their new sign.

I can finally make an addition to HOBO2010.

Also, this was my new iPhone's first photo.
