gone fishin'

On my way to the UPS store today I spotted two people sitting next to a canal on the side of the road, fishing.

If you've seen the canals that run through south Phoenix, you know there ain't no fish in there! If there were, they'd probably be high on meth and full of stray bullets.

Perhaps the odd couple was in it for the scenery or the relaxing experience that comes with surrendering a day to the water. If so, you'd think they would move their rusty aluminum folding chairs down the way a bit. Seriously, they sat right on the side of 24th Street, 15 feet from the bust stop, waiting patiently with fishing poles in hand, hoping to catch I don't know what.

If I wasn't such a fraidy cat around urban nut jobs, I would have asked to take a picture.
