Ruthie In Portland, Oregon Update

Let's take a walk down West Burnside Street in Portland, Oregon, shall we?

Oh, look at the nice pretty people, all spiffed-up in their Sunday best...enjoying a nice meal...with polished silver and white linen tablecloths.

Portland Looks Away

Sure is nice here, isn't it? Yeah... Uh... Wait a minute... Ew! What the hell is THAT! Oh my Gosh, Gross!!

Some people just don't know how to take care of things!

Hmmm...maybe the City trash collectors are all on strike this week.

Dear me, look at THAT, would ya!!

A street person walks slowly up to us.

"Hey, you, gotta cigarette?"

We agree to give him gum instead if he'll tell us where all the trash has come from.

The guy gives us a disgusted look and says,"That ain't no garbage, that's my spot."

Your "spot", we ask?

"Yeah" he says, shoving his hands in his jacket, "My home...where I live."

Do you live here by yourself? we ask.

"Aw, nooo," explains the guy and takes his hands out of his jacket again, spreading his arms wide.

"A whole buncha us live here," he explains.

"We just ate lunch" he adds and then asks us again for a cigarette.
