Black & White





In the course of less than 1O minutes, these two guys, John Henry Elliston, 65 and Stevo, 23 hit it off like they were good friends. Seemed like something out of Haight Ashbury in 1968. They discussed God and the book Paradise Lost. John Henry was getting off work. Stevo was in court most of the day with his court appointed attorney fighting a vehicular assault charge. His car went into a ditch injuring the front-seat passenger. I told him that didn’t make sense. How could there be a criminal charge if there was no intent? Stevo said the charge was proper, he went down down the embankment while high and the car was stolen 15 minutes beforehand. “I injured my passenger in the commission of a felony.”
