Comment from Jack Knox about homelessness in the region.
Wednesday noon hour, headed downtown. First in view: a woman going bat-crap crazy on the Blanshard Street sidewalk. High? Mentally ill? Dunno. Turned right, a parka-clad man was poking down Caledonia, shopping cart piled high. Walked into Centennial Square, where a country band was pumping out a pretty good version of Whiskey River. The audience paid no heed to the homeless man parked on the bench. Street furniture. Invisible.
