    Huh. I’d completely forgotten what Biggs was like before he was in withdrawal and scared shitless. He sounds smart, more than street-smart. I’d love to know his backstory. :)

      Yeah, he doesn’t look like death walking either. And ‘Spare me your programmed adolescent outrage’ is just too good a line to not use again.

      Better certainly than any heroin addict I’ve ever met. Which I wish I could say was a negligible number. Their supremely disappointing antics aside, “communicable degeneracy” strikes me as a disgusting cause for eviction given the ways it could be interpreted. Even its phrasing offends me.

      • Filthy Pazuzu says:

        I’ve met plenty of heroin addicts. I’d say there’s the same proportion of idiots among junkies as there is among the rest of the population. I met some very bright people in Sunset Park, Wilzburg, and Bed-Stuy.

    Hey, guys – some people are reading this through for the first time, and I really don’t want to know who’s going to dry out or what … remember when you read it through the first time? Thanks.

    Biggs might have his problems, but he always did strike me as a sharp guy.
    I agree, communicable degeneracy sounds like the sort of thing the social hygiene coalition would come up with.
