    i, too have seen those stickers all over the city…in bars, on signs etc…but one night i saw a homeless person selling them and asked where he got them and he told me that he asked a guy for money and the guy gave him a big stack of them and told him to sell them for as much as he could and keep the money. the old “teach a man to fish” thing came to mind. the printer is maybe doing more for the city than you/we realize? sure, one man didn’t single handedly “kill” the city but when something goes wrong the “boss” usually has to accept most of the blame. and, i agree, the city wasn’t too “alive” before him but i think it has taken a turn for the worse since. i think that the statemant is an obvious exageration and perhaps you’re over analizing it a bit.

    i doubt the people who made this sticker thought to themselves, “boy i’d really like to help the homeless, why don’t we make stickers for them to sell and they can say, ‘kwame killed my city'”… like it was some humanitarian effort… i could be wrong…

    exaggerated statements get exaggerated retorts… my premise remains the same, quit the accusing and finger-pointing… i’m not here to argue with people who hate kwame… i’m here to say, let’s do some positive work and see what happens…

    I completely agree Baliad, the blame game has been going on for decades and it has only made things worse.
