A somber note at the food-sharingThe Wednesday evening food-sharing is usually a happy* picnic in the park, with lots of good talk, laughs and -- of course -- great food.
But last night there was a somber note, as word spread that one of the regulars had been killed by a drunk driver.
We all knew him as Stacey, but it turns out his real name was Keith Hess. He was riding his bike when a drunk driver plowed into him from behind and ran him over.
Read the Orlando Sentinel report here.
This morning I sadly added his name to the list of people to be remembered on Homeless Persons' Memorial Day.
* It's been a pleasant, tension-free event since the city has been prohibited from enforcing its ordinance restricting the food-sharings. A federal judge ruled the ordinance violated people's constitutional rights. We're still waiting for a decision from the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.
