Another Thrilling Tale in the Continuing Adventures of Skid Row

I’m sure a lot of people read the Weekly‘s hand-wringing kids-on-Skid-Row expose from last week, “Coming of Age in the Mouth of Madness.” I know I did, and I kept thinking to myself that it was nice that Skid Row continued to get attention from the media, and that maybe we’re finally getting to the point of critical mass needed to generate some real change. Well, Brady Westwater read it too and he’s got quite an eye-opening response that questions the factual accuracy of the piece and also points out some of the ingrained biases that probably affect how some of us perceive the problem and what’s being done about it.
