Three young women were camped out in the center boulevard at the intersection of Franklin and Cedar Avenues in Minneapolis this afternoon. Unlike most Twin Cities panhandlers, their faces didn't bear the wear and tear of decades of addiction.
While two lounged in the shade of a small tree, one held a hand-lettered sign which read:
If you voted for OBAMA, you owe me some CHANGE.
I regret that I left my camera at home.
