This one is kind of sad.
Overheard, about two weeks ago, at the main branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia, located in the city's Logan Square area, a conversation between two rather weatherbeaten middle-aged men washing and shaving in the men's room:
Man No. 1: "You know, this is it for us."
Man No. 2: "What is?"
Man No. 1: "This is it. We're gonna be living like this -- like pigeons -- for the rest of our lives."
