You've got to watch those food pantries. My special friend in Central Hyde Park has a big house and two cars, refuses to work and gets free food. Make sure you're not donating to the people who can afford to buy food.

The Crossroads district will never be the same again. Now the plan is to put the artists(?) in the alleys with the trash dumpsters. How will I ever tell the difference of artists from the homeless beggars that hang out there every day? Who will be able to get the stench of urine and poop out of their classy shoes and the grease from restaurants in the air from fans pushing hot smelly greasy air on people?
Great plan crossroads.
