Some of my neighbors

It's raining hard this morning.

We need the rain. I hope this guy is inside somewhere.

That couch is going to be soggy.

I'm not sure there are really more street sleepers in these days, but I think there might be. Undoubtedly, the social service bureaucracy that struggles to deal with them is shrinking as budget cuts hit the city. Two hundred thirty-six city workers were laid off Friday.

President Obama tried to give us a sense that he's got a plan in his speech last night. Damn he's good at that "hope" shtick! Yes, that helps some. Think how we'd feel if it were that other guy.
