Considering what I'm seeing as I walk the streets of Philadelphia and Baltimore - as well as what I'm reading about Los Angels and San Francisco - perhaps it's time to revisit this tune and its message.
While walking to Philadelphia's Kimmel Center last summer, I stumbled upon the perfect "social commentary" photo. However, out of respect for the man who would have been photographed, I did not take a photo. After all, would any of us have liked to have been photographed sleeping on the sidewalk (what is called "sleeping rough") right outside of the Wells Fargo Tower? I think not.
Meanwhile, if one goes just a few blocks south of where I live in Baltimore one shall find at least two people sleeping on a steam grate. It keeps them warm...and I have written about this before.
