... these people, too, apparently try to eek out a living.

I spotted these folks on the walk from Union Station to the National Mall, so I imagine there are many more stunning examples of homelessness in Washington, D.C.

I know homelessness exists everywhere and might be more visible in urban centers, but I found it a bit disheartening that well-dressed people who appeared to be on their way to work at Capitol Hill walked past this every morning.

Good, Congress, work on reforming health care. Debate troop levels in Afghanistan. But how many times do we all walk past a little human tragedy, a very real problem, and proceed as if it weren't there at all?
