Yeah, so, sometimes I take BART to the West Oakland station and walk to the office.
It’s about a 30-minute walk. There’s a greenway down the center of Mandela Parkway, and if you stick to that, it’s a nice, little walk.
It rained yesterday and last night, so the snails were trying to work their way across the cement path as they tend to do when it rains. I say “trying” because someone walked along the path and stepped on all the snails! My entire walk was littered with snail carcasses. It was sad and gross.
What I’m trying to tell you is that there is a serial killer on the loose in West Oakland. The trail of snails is clue. There’s some serious “True Detective” shit going on. Consider yourself warned.
