The American Caliban
Mike is a frequent visitor to the Corner. He lives in his van. He has had—and is—a long, strange trip. He goes to swap meets a lot and shows up with some very colorful women he's met, especially at the San Diego one. He drinks half & half and smokes a lot, and has probably done whichever drug you're thinking of. Today, Mike got a few things at the Vons and decided to make them into a sandwich and eat them on the strip of grass next to his van.
