I walk from the Gallery Place stop up 7th street to work. There are ALWAYS a ton of guys (possibly homeless, possibly just hanging out) sitting on the steps of the closed storefronts. They generally share comments among themselves – sometimes stuff like “mmm-HMM” in tones of approval when they see some women, and “aw, hell no!” when they see others. They’re usually gone by evening rush hour.

    Don’t these “Loitering Losers” have anything better to do with their time than appraise women’s looks? They need to get a life!
