April 5, 1961: Anyone who patrols the downtown beat becomes accustomed to odd sights. There are the resolute pigeon feeders and the sad characters who poke through refuse cans for hidden treasure. There are the men with a faraway look who push baby buggies filled with bottles trying to make a slow dime and the dedicated placard carriers, hoping to avert world catastrophe with a garbled, home-made message, Matt Weinstock says. 

CONFIDENTIAL TO "DESK NEAR THE WINDOW": A woman who marries a man because she "feels sorry for him" usually winds up feeling sorrier for herself.
