I took a drive south of Yuma today to present my children's music program. A few miles before I reached the town of San Luis, I caught a glimpse of the border wall. It followed the road almost all the way into town. White pickup trucks drove the frontage along it. I imagine they were border patrol.

 

 

 

“Papa, why don’t we go to church anymore?”

 

“Well, that’s a pretty good question. To be honest, I thought I was the only one who wanted go.  Besides, we’ve been so busy that most Sunday mornings we're pretty tired and just want to enjoy having some quiet time together as a family.”

 

 

There is a newspaper that is sold on the streets all over Chicago. It’s called Streetwise. Essentially, it was created to assist homeless people. Streetwise vendors are trained and required to carry badges. The idea is that the job is a stepping-stone to other gainful employment. Sometimes vendors are also contributors to the paper. It is literally a “man on the street” operation, and it gives its readers a perspective that is simply unavailable from either of Chicago’s major newspapers.
