In San Francisco I stood every day in line all morning to get fed in St. Anthony’s at 11 am. Already at noon this line for limited shelter started forming. Later I got wiser. With Muhammad, a black panther, I started a food program for the poor – actually in order to get a bit more to eat ourselves. It was financed by Glide Memorial Church. Muhammad is still homeless and today makes a living from selling my book in the streets of New York, where we often talk about “the good old days” at his fire in the evenings.
