Meaner Streets

While we were up in Newburgh, our host, JT, took us around the neighborhood, parts of which were quite impoverished, and, to my eye, maybe not so safe. But in every instance, when we met folks on the street, he would invariably greet them with a cheery "Good morning," and some polite small talk, and everyone was incredibly polite and friendly. I was so impressed, I decided to start doing the same myself, to create a more friendly vibe around the neighborhood.

But when I was out walking the dog tonight, no one would meet my eye.
