Homeless Man Conducts Unintentional Hunger Strike

A local homeless man has entered the third day of a hunger strike of undetermined duration. “I will not eat anything at all until I can buy or possibly find some food,” announced street resident Lester Carson to the self-assembled press of a shopping cart, his old shoe, and a three-legged cat. “It says a lot to put your well-being on the line for a worthy cause,” he continued, “But I have no cause. I’m just really, really hungry!” Carson has compiled a list of demands, one of which is “a goddamned sandwich.”
