Stronger neighborhoods, one campfire at a time.

No kidding, I was driving southbound on Bruceville on my way home just a short while ago and a man just staggered right across the road in heavy traffic right near this spot. It is a wonder he made it across the road.

I wonder if that little bridge area along Bruceville is a gathering spot for homeless people. The unfortunate gentleman appeared a bit scruffy and very disoriented.
