The street vendor said business was not good because no one had any money, but the conversation was short because I speak little Spanish and he little English. I bought a package of peanuts for 50 cents and walked a short block to Figueroa Street, where I stood talking to a Jehovah's Witness handing out the Watchtower. A man wheeling a lawn edger crossed Slauson toward us. "I'll kill you, motherfucker," he said as he passed. "I'll kill you." The Watchtower had an article on Hiroshima: "In a river, the soldiers trawled a fishing net from a boat and recovered more than 50 bodies every time they pulled up the net. We took the bodies ashore and stacked them in fires and burned them."
