Let no one tell you that living is easy. I'm tired, it's cold, and I'm waiting in midnight darkness for my papers. They're late. I'm fighting a cold, I couldn't sleep, and somedays I wish I could afford to skip a day.
I have thought about salary girls, $2.00 lattes, and young politicos making money off of someone running for president who probably won't win. They all are sitting inside today, while I'm on my milk crate covered with cardboard.
Don't think I'm looking for the easy life. Just an honest one. Enough papers sell, I pay my rent. Just like that. News makes the world go round. What else would the blogs talk about, or the politicos if they didn't read the news.
Maybe that's the lure of the Super Bowl. It is bipartisan.
I asked about Kathy. She has been staying in. Sitting in her wheelchair in the open breeze all day is just foolish, and she knows it. Someone from a church gave her some money and food to cover the time. Good for them. I know it isn't polite to say, "Thank God," but Kathy needs every bit of help she can. Selling StreetWise shouldn't be a career choice but a stepping stone.
I've enjoyed a meal or two at some of Chicago's finest. If you can, help them out. They are helping more people than it seems anyone knows. I can vouch for the class and respect they give everyone who walks in the door, whether you're a suit or homeless or somewhere in between.

I keep seeing that weight loss commercial with the "It was an itsy bitsy, teenie weenie, yellow polka dot bikini". Look it up (choose Apparel, type in bikini). You might be as surprised as I was. Fun song.
