Possibly the oldest known fan of Pokemon Go, Tom "discovered" a rare Jinx character at a "Poke Stop" at the junction of the Alpine and Toyon Trails. That Pokemon characters could be transvestites was news to Steve and I, but Tom took it in stride without even cracking a smile. Despite our repeated efforts to ridicule Tom's obsession, he continues to ignore or rebuff our insults, calmly pausing along a trail whenever a pokemon "appears" so he can "flick" a Pokeball with his phone to secure its "capture". Thus encapsulates one man's spiral from responsible citizen to the netherworlds of the long-term unemployables.
