v.— «It was after 3 p.m., and we realized as we stepped outside that we had only a little time until dark, and we were hungry. We had half a loaf of bread and warm mayonnaise, but no protein. We “spanged,” as it’s called on the street. That is, after struggling with our dignity and reigniting our purpose, we asked for money.» —“Plunging into a dark world” by Chris Durant, James Faulk Times-Standard (Eureka, California) Dec. 17, 2006.
