Back at my coffee shop, Ruta Maya. Lots of new faces. Austin was a haven for nomadic youth. This character hated government though he had children with three different women in as many states. They were all on assistance and didn’t want his involvement. His current girlfriend was due. He would drop her off at the E/R and leave. I couldn’t help but point out how much this “unnecessary” government enabled him. I found him irresponsible and irritating. He got on a government road and left.
