… The City of Homeless Love - Taki's Magazine. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)
Interesting. I walked from 11th and Filbert to South Philly last night and didn't see anything like this. Don't get me wrong. I remember leaving the Central Library one night some years ago and seeing that the park area across the way had become a camp ground for the homeless. But I find it amazing that one guy could see so much of this in one day and in some of the better parts of town (e.g., Rittenhouse Square). I walk all over and don't usually see as much as he did in a week, let alone a single day. That said, our current mayor is a poor specimen, and I suspect what is reported here will only grow more common.
