Kansas City Westport Hobo Life
Took this photo in Kansas City's Westport Party District last night.
No, I didn't take him up and throw him a dollar for his street life image . . . But then again, he didn't ask.
Just thought this quick snapshot might offer a bit of perspective to so many local revelers who proclaim the Westport Renaissance.
We complain quite a bit about the ongoing Kansas City murder rate carnage . . . Rightfully so . . .
But last night I realized that Kansas City has a lot of other longstanding problems as well . . . Like homelessness, or lack of affordable drink specials or whatever this sidewalk hobo's problem was at that moment . . .
And that's about as close as we'll get to compassion on this blog for a Monday morning . . .
