    Re: The Skirt Man of Ames

    Huh, I'd always figured the dress was because he identified as female. Not because he'd rather wear nothing and skirts are easier to find than kilts.

    I'd also assumed he was homeless. Guess I was wrong on that as well.

    I see him on my way to work most days, seems harmless enough, always kind of wondered what his story was.

    Good old Richard. I hit City Hall enough that he knows my name. Thanks for posting!

    I just was reading this earlier. He will also sometimes go and blow up City Hall meetings with complaints, but he may have slowed down on that. You could catch him on the Ames channel on Mediacom about 8 years ago.

    Does the older lady that stared at people on the bus and spoke in tounges at them still hang around?
