Today we read about Montag when he ran away. He is on the side of a rail rode track and he met about 4 or 5 other guys. But before he ran away he crassed a river and lost the hound and the helecopters. So they made up a ending so they would end the news with a bang. They caught a guy that was just walking down the street.

It was about Montag almost being hit buy a beetle(car) but he fell so the car couldnt hit him becuse the car was going to fast and would have fliped if it had rn him over. When the car drove past him it ran over his finger. He thought that the car just cam to scare him but then it turned around and started speedingback. Montag ran into an alley before the car had seen where he had whent.

He was reading a poetry book to the people. Mrs. Bowles hated the poetry because it has emotion and feeling and they didnt like that. So Montag and Mrs. Bowles got into a argument and Montag ended up telling Mrs Bowles she had to leave.
