My uncle once emailed me one of those "You know you're from Philadelphia if..." lists. It included "knowing a homeless person by name," and that was true. Everyone I knew had at least one homeless person they looked out for. Someone they worried about when they hadn't seen in a while, or made sure to say hello to when they reappeared. Maybe my cadre of poverty lawyers, witches, and Quakers were unusually gregarious in this manner, but I think we all were willing to make small talk with just about anyone, random homeless people included.

It's one of the things I miss about Philly.
