    I’ve noticed that the homeless and the panhandlers are such a part of the background in Asheville that they’ve faded into the background. It’s to the point that you can always tell who’s a local and who’s a tourist if you ever see someone from the background come forward, so to speak.

    Case in point: a friend of mine and I were downtown and standing at the corner of College and Broadway, looking across toward the parking deck. A man was kneeling on the sidewalk there, and he would raise up, then slam his head back down on the sidewalk. Raise up, slam down, raise up, slam down…

    The locals were ignoring him, continuing their conversations with one another or with whoever happened to be on the other end of the phone. The tourists were taking his picture.

    Another day, another homeless crazy person. Part of the background color.

    This cartoon has a bitteroot tang kind of beauty and please notice that the caption is “invisible”, not “invisible in Asheville”. Sadly, the scene could be from many cities.
