“I was walking down L Street, suddenly it felt as if somebody was following me. I turned. No one there. I continued walking downtown. Once again, uh, I felt someone following. I turned, looked, and again, no one was there. It was odd, strange… This happened several more times before I got to my office. Changing into my California Supreme Court robes it happened again. It was a, ah, a creepy god-awful sensation: a feeling, a presence, strange, disturbing. I turned -- nothing there -- so using a mirror, I searched my naked back. It was horrific -- I saw something I’d never seen before. Hair. I had back hair. I was being followed everywhere I went by back hair. No matter where I went the hair was there, following. After that I got dressed and went to work judging the legal merits of President Trump’s presidential powers in California…”
