“You see that guy with the black and yellow jacket? He’s going to be the next one to die.

PHILIP
“What do you mean by ‘next guy to die’ ?”

TONY
“You know, after Lefty.  We did a post on the blog about him. You remember?

PHILIP
“OK, now I get it. Why is he going to die next?”

TONY
“It’s pretty simple. He told me the other day.”

Lefty laid low by loneliness

“My friend Lefty died on Thursday last week. You know, he’s the one who was homeless and was in front of the Beer Store over on Dundas. Man, there were tears that came to my eyes when I heard about him. I want to pass on my sincerest condolences to everyone in his family. You know, in a way, Lefty died from loneliness.”

Addendum (July 8): Tony found a great article about Lefty in the Toronto Star of July 5th.
