Glendale, CA -- The gentleman above asked if I wanted to take a "stress test." He set up a table on the sidewalk near the Alex Theater. My initial reaction was, "No thank you." I began to look over the stress-measuring contraption on the bottom left called the "E-Meter;" the two electrode clips alone stressed me out. I told him that I am a Christian and that I have a peace that transcends all understanding. He was very nice and then asked if I wanted a book on Dianetics. I kindly declined and engaged in a conversation him more about his beliefs as well as all the movie stars like Tom Cruise, John Travolta and others.
Before I left, I asked him if I could take his photo. He asked how his photo would be used. I told him the truth, as I do everyone.
