Subject: Shoes: An afterthought

Shortly before watching last night's episode it occurred
to me to connect "Leo needs new shoes" with the one-armed
man's (Mike's) purported identity as a traveling shoe salesman.
Possibility 1 is that Leo was just using a well-worn phrase
and Mike is who he says he is. He turns out to be a pathetic
sort for the sake of an unusual bit of atmosphere.
Possibility 2 is that Mike is putting up a front and is
still dealing in a something more exotic than shoes.
"Pharmaceuticals" is a natural possibility, but with this
show it could be something odder, such as trained birds.
Or perhaps he has a Flesh World connection...
