Against Robots

My name is Josh and my dad has been taking me to State Street since I was little. Now a university student I will miss this gentle giant. My favorite Cosmo story is thus...

Cosmo flying down State St. on his sweet silver BMX bike, in a blue mechanic's jumpsuit, screaming at the top of his lungs. I just smiled that big smile that he often brought with him.

Later I was in Ragstock and Cosmo comes in. The girl working the counter tells him they are having a robot drawing competition and that he should draw a robot and they will put it up in the window.

Cosmo stops, leans over to the girl, looks her straight in the eye and yells, "I fuckin' hate Nazis!"

Then he strides out the door. Always bringing a smile.
