I Saw You

I think I saw Marion Barry last night. But I'm not sure.

Street Traffic was insane last night for some reason. Every intersection I passed was totally gridlocked. The streets were jammed. A bus planted itself right in the middle of the intersection of 14th and Eye, the driver opens the door and says to the suited, middle-aged, slightly-balding, compulsively-chewing-on-his-own-lip black man ahead of me, "We need you back in office! Not even a term out and look at all of this mess!"

I kept trying to look at the guy to see for sure, but he slipped into the crowd, nimbly shaking me. Did the guy just look like Marion Barry? Was the bus driver wrong or just being funny? If this guy is not Marion Barry, does he get this all the time?
