He forgot to talk softly. And maybe he needed a bigger stick.

I was in that neighborhood last night at about that time and there was some kook wandering through 9th Street, jumping around erratically, and yelling at the top of his lungs. Maybe one of the participants on Just Another Summer Evening in Lawrence.
