shit list: gutter punks
morninggloria: Every summer, these gutter punks/crusty punks invade Wicker Park and kind of lounge around stinking up the 6 point intersection and being assholes about the fact that I’m not giving them money every time I pass by. They use the outlets at Starbucks to charge their cell phones and tie off and shoot heroin on Pierce street across Damen from Big Star (like they were yesterday...
