3 more days to get arrested again in New Orleans!

At least it isnt a totally foreign country, or you might have had to try to explain that those little peices of rope really aren't something that fell out of your "pipe"!

Keep us updated, Koz! And please try to be a little less confrontational out there!

Bummer. I was asked to go home, get this, because they said, (the cops) that some of the people that saw me were scared of what I was doing and it was disturbing to them.

(duh, its not real magic, I said that I would perform the "art of illusion", that should have been a pretty big clue.)

I kept trying to think of what I did that would scare someone. I was doing some coins, bills and simple rope types of things. Linking pins, chop cup, ellis ring. None of that sounds like scary stuff to me. My third day out.....Great.

Such is life, even WITH regard for right and wrong.
