Forget The Dress Code Controversy: Panhandlers Have Arrived

Homeless dude John at P&L: most people are just "kinda mean, selfish"

Homeless dude John at P&L: most people are "just kind of mean"

Just when you thought the Power & White – I mean – Power & Light – dress code controversy had reached its zenith…

I mean, come on. When the Kansas City Star editorial board starts policing fashion with advice like all male patrons wishing to guzzle beer and ogle half-dressed wait staff hotties should have to wear “trousers belted at the waist” how much further can the media ride this news horse?

So time to move on, right?

And where better to move, with the weather warming, than to the topic of Kansas City’s homeless hanging at the P&L and panhandling the party crowd.

Take John from Lawrence, who opted to withhold his last name, but allowed a photograph to be taken.

I caught up to him hanging on the sidewalk just outside the P&L on Grand Boulevard.

His story: “Just transient and trying to go out to Florida,” he says. “Out of work, out of a place to live, staying off and on out at the Mission.”

How long John’s been on the P&L scene?

    If you don’t want to go to a mission, how about Jail you Bum.
