Walking the streets of a major city as much as I do, one can’t help noticing the increasing fragmentation of our society. Class, race, wealth all contribute to this but the really scary fact is so often it goes virtually unnoticed. Trump is in the White House because those in power didn’t see it or, even worse, were too myopic and self centered to look. Maybe a camera would help.

There’s a new synthetic marijuana around here that would appear to be taking a real hold on the pot smokers. It’s called K2 and if you’ve never heard of it, I hadn’t, look it up. The dealers on the path that we take every day through Boston Common to get to the subway are really messing their customers up. The tragedy of this scene is that less than 200 yards from where this kid is lying, there are million dollar condos with very rich people in them that don’t give a damn about him.
No wonder there are so many people that are fed up with the great divide between rich and poor.
