Interesting. Do you ask them if you can record them before you turn on the recorder? Just curious. One question I wonder about is if homeless people in places like Chicago would like to move to a warmer city. I suppose there are many reasons why they don't or can't. I suspect one of the main reasons they don't move south would be because familiarity with the city they are in, I would think, would be important to safety and security for a homeless person.
Monte,I do ask them for permission, and I am sure to hold the mic in a conspicuous location.That is a good question. I wanted to ask Orlando why he doesn't go to be with his family in Florida, but the light changed before I could do so.I was talking to Brian, and he told me about the loose homeless laws in Tallahassee. Evidently it makes for a large influx of displaced citizens during the winter months.I'll try to address that in future interviews. Thanks for the feedback!~CW
