Homeless bookseller in Boston closing “bookstore”

A very sad, but moving tale in yesterday’s Boston Globe, about the trials and tribulations of Boston Square’s “homeless bookseller”.

Fully appreciate the quote at the end of the article:

I come by here every day, and it (the bookstall) redeems my visit to a part of Cambridge that is becoming increasingly colorless, faceless, and franchised.

If only the faceless epidemic were quarantined in Cambridge….  Personally, I’d rather live in a city full of the homeless, than of the faceless.
