    I’d be really curious to know how many more clicks per hour this story got after it dropped down to the bottom of the page and the picture changed from the pigeon lady to the toesies.

    OMG, this is wonderful stuff. Thank you for passing it along. I am enchanted by quite a few of these people.

    Wish we’d have had the ability to do stuff like this when I was growing up in Spokane, Washington. (Video cameras were still pretty spendy in the early 80′s!) One of our passtimes as teens was to sit downtown and observe the different street people and oddballs we’d see everyday and develop our own little backstories for them. Would have been interesting to have actually gone and interviewed them and discovered their true stories. Probably would have found the truth was much more interesting.

    The NYTimes has a similar (and similarly wonderful) ongoing series called “One in 8 Million.”.
