Last week, I parked my car on Cordova near Abbott at 6:45 pm.

I walked a block and a half to The Spaghetti Factory to meet an old friend. We meet there about once every four or five months.

Here is what I saw.

Four homeless men lying in rags under the eaves of buildings, one after another.

Then, on the corner, and immediately adjacent to the homeless men, a new and very upscale chi-chi eatery. Big windows, big show. And filled with chi-chi folk, clearly happy to be seen in the big windows as part of the big show.

Vancouver April, 2008.

Reminds me of a scene from a movie.
