Then you'll be welcome too, "C"harity,"H"andouts,"O"live branch,"L"ove and "O"fferings. Cholopianville, are your eyes closed Cholo? The berm along 580, southside, will light up the sky, to all incoming aircraft and ground travel... for all to experiance... your vision. All your little cholo's will stand on top of the berm and wave...and wave...and wave. That's all for today, Cholo. Pay the receptionist $300 on the way out. Hope you feel better...
