Welcome to the Big City

OK, so we have all HEARD the stories of the old used needles laying around in parks and stuff. But have you actually SEEN one? Here in the Holy City of Salt Lake? Me either. Until yesterday. I jumped out of the car, began dragging my bass out the back, and noticed this beside the car:

First time for me. Welcome to the big city. I guess we really are a big city now. Thanks, junkies. You're putting us on the map.

And by the way, WOULD SOMEBODY PLEASE TURN DOWN THE HEAT!!???

When I was working at the school ( here in the middle of suburbia), we used to go out every morning beofre school and comb the park. There are scary people out there.
Daughter tells us that that's nothing, she sees needles on the steps of the school if she gets there early enough...while she steps over the sleeping homeless on the steps.
