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...
