(Toledo, OH) On any given day I see a lot of strange sights around me. On the good days I have my camera with me to document the oddities that I come across.
Parked next to me today at the University of Toledo was a red pickup truck, overflowing with hundreds of loaves of bread. There were loaves of white bread, wheat bread, and bags of burger buns in the bed, while the cab of the pickup was loaded with those long loaves of French bread I enjoy so much.
I'm assuming that the owner of said truck collected the loaves from a local baker or retail outlet, and is using them to feed the homeless. Perhaps, instead, this person might taking this leftover bread and freezing it for personal use.
Still, leaving the bread out in the middle of an early March downpour does not bode well for this perishable food. Had I not just stuffed myself with free pizza at the John Yoo lecture
, I just might have helped myself to a loaf of bread.
