Life on the streets

Okay, driving cab is not the same as being a police officer. I haven't seen too many bloody accidents or shoot-outs on the streets. But there's a certain ebb and flow to the streets that's kind of amazing -- and difficult to explain.

I've developed a feel for the streets of San Diego. Strangely, a metropolitan area of three million people has a collective mood, and I sense it instantly. Did the Chargers win? Are the wildfires getting close to the city limits? Can the Padres beat the Yankees tonight? Did you say the Mayor just resigned, and his replacement was arrested on corruption charges?
