Tuesday PM, Gay Street

My first drive-by encounter.  I was spotted taking this photo.  He waved.  I waved.  Then he got up.

Green light.  Traffic was moving.  He walked across traffic and stood in front of the truck.  I waved him over to the window.  He mumbled something about needing a job — it was hard to understand.  I gave him a dollar…smiled…and said “I’ll see you soon”.

For his sake…I hope I don’t, but something inside me says I will.

Sara drove the get away car this weekend…as we took a stroll down York Road into the heart of the city.  91 degree temperatures couldn’t keep the regulars off the streets, but most opted for the comfort of a bench in the shade.  Approximately 3000 people are homeless in Baltimore.  Juxtapose that with the number of vacant homes…boarded up…begging for a tenant.  Something is wrong here Baltimore.  It can’t be good for business and it definitely has to stifle any chance of neighborhood pride.

Thanks for joining me sweetheart.  I couldn’t do any of this without your support.  Bonnie & Clyde….2008.

Profound statement at the bus stop on York Road at Gittings… 

We have real estate for the homeless…
