The Charles Manson Lookalike Outside Of Glatt Mart

As I walked past Glatt Mart this afternoon, I saw this guy around 45 years of age with a beard and a crazy gleam in his eye. He was begging for money. I’ve seen him around the neighborhood for about a year. I once saw him steal a sandwich from the Starbucks on Pico and Robertson and got kicked out for it.

I wish people didn’t give to the insane and criminal homeless. It just encourages more of them to take up residence in 90035.

* As I was lugging six bags of groceries down Pico Blvd this afternoon in my sweats, I heard my name called out. I turned around and it was this rabbi I’ve only known online. He said he was having lunch with his mom who was a big fan of mine so I stopped by the posh restaurant and said hi.
