The Five Points Guy

So, um, there won't be any buying of the Winston-Salem Journal at Five Points today. Here is the incredibly nice paper seller being hauled off in handcuffs. I have no idea why.

Coming the opposite direction an hour or so later, I saw the little traffic triangle empty but for some possessions he left. There was a U.S. flag taped to a pole, a WFU flag underneath it, and a Christmas ribbon tied on another pole. I felt a sharp sadness realizing he had tried to personalize "his" area.
