Letters From Downtown
Signs of Compassion
By Ty Bannerman [ Fri Nov 20 2015 1:58 PM ]
When you work Downtown, when you're here day after day, you deaden a bit to some of the things you see. A couple huddled in a doorway on a cold November morning, a worn-out blanket barely covering them; cops on bikes pulling a homeless man up off of the sidewalk, a puddle of vomit at his feet; an elderly gentleman in suit and tie, stalking down the street and shouting curses at the demons leaking from his head; none of these things provoke a second glance after a while. There's a lot of suffering here for sure and very little that one person can do. A dollar here, a dollar there, maybe that helps a bit, but the overall feeling is one of powerlessness, and slowly you become hardened to it.
Today, though, I noticed this sign in the window of Lindy's Diner, and that numbness thawed just a little bit. No, Lindy's isn't going to solve the problems of homelessness and hunger. And one single meal on one single day isn't "enough." But it is something, a reminder that hardness isn't the answer, that compassion is. And that even if we can never do enough, we can, and should, still try.

The Daily Word In Pissing Kate Middleton Off, Dogs Dressed Up As Turkeys And A 6-Year-Old Girl's Skateboarding Posse
By Amelia Olson [ Wed Nov 26 2014 12:14 PM ]
It’s Wednesday November 26th and this rude ass storm is ruining Thanksgiving!
Meanwhile in Southern California, three six-year-old girls are cooler than we will ever be, and skateboard all the damn time.
In Pakistan, 20-year-old Aansoo Kohli teaches 150 children in a shed, isn’t paid for the job, and is finishing her Bachelors Degree,
And if you’re American and you're reading this from your tent outside Best Buy while you wait for a 99 cent TV, joke's on you! You’re doing it wrong!
A local “cafeteria angel” is paying off student lunch debts at elementary schools anonymously and depositing money into needy families' bank accounts, because apparently some people care about other people?
And while the rest of us are consuming questionable amounts of alcohol this “holiday” season and arguing with our racist in-laws, these dogs are all that really matter this Thanksgiving.
Americans can't do anything right. We can’t even dress ourselves! Which really pisses Kate Midleton off. C'mon, you guys! Get it together!
Merry happy Thanksgiving, or whatever. Don’t drink and drive.

The Daily Word in stealthy seahorses, unpardoned turkeys and human-like baby goats
By Ty Bannerman [ Wed Nov 27 2013 9:13 AM ]
The weather is getting wintry and some ABQ kids need help staying warm. Here's where you can donate a coat.
A 14-year old kid was banned from Coronado mall for being punched in the head and called a fag. And then his attacker posted a video of the incident to youtube.
The NSA is watching you masturbate.
President Obama is preparing to pardon a turkey, as presidents have done since 1989.
And since the turkey gets pardoned, it's reasonable to ask: What do they eat at a White House Thanksgiving? Why, another turkey, of course. A very bad turkey who doesn't have a cute name like "Popcorn" and therefore doesn't deserve a pardon, I assume.
You can add this to your repertoire of animal-based similes: "As stealthy as a seahorse."
And finally, my favorite headline of the day: Confusion in Ekiti town as goat delivers human-like baby goat!
