Bless This City: A Kitsilano Bum

A man in derelict clothing has his legs spilling onto the sidewalk. He's reading a Bryce Courtney novel, sipping from a Starbuck's cup and using another as a tip cup. Using the world as his lawn chair. Soaking in the sun while the rest of us pace back to work or the the grocery store or wherever. This isn't a downtown hobo. He's not even trying. This is something else all together.

Bottom Line: If you can read a novel, you can read the McDonald's janitorial handbook.

Well the bums in Kits have gotta get their designer coffee, too, Steve, you uncompassionate bastard!
