The Original Hobo Nickel Society presents a dictionary of hobo slang. I picked up the term "angel" from a dear friend who used to hitchhike across the States and Mexico before adopting the settled life of an anarchist women's collective.
I would be grateful for all Flea-readers to be my angels and remember me in today's vote for Best Culture Blog. One percent and I can overtake Gawker. Just saying.

I thought I'd picked up a lot of this from Blish's "Cities In Flight". Apparently not, according to this some of the terms I thought I knew mean other things.
