To the Editor…

Thank you so much for the story “Remembering Shorty” by Earl Brown. It was very moving and an excellent depiction of one individual’s life in the Tenderloin (and 6th Street) as well as the plight of many veterans in our country.

I worked at TNDC for several years. Shorty was featured on the reality show “Animal Cops” due to the numerous cats he had at The Drake, next door to TNDC’s main office. I once saw him at Dalda’s (aka “Jimmy’s”) and said, excitedly, “hey, I saw you on TV”. He got all embarrassed. It was funny and sweet.

Rest in peace, Shorty.
