As I went to take the bus to today's TPO Retreat, it was snowing and the wind was whipping through. Therefore, I was surprised when the man who joined me in my home bus shelter was wearing only a fleece, with neither a hat nor gloves.
With my attention now on the issue, I started looking at what people were wearing when I reached the Military Circle Transfer Center. About one-third of those waiting weren't wearing proper Winter coats. In that weather.
Not smart enough to bundle up? Our region's notoriously low wages making a Winter coat unreachable for some? Has the recession just made things harder for many? I don't know the answer, but it was a sad sight to see.
