    Some sort of interactive feature: questions, polls; perhaps readers could submit questions?

    more photos of Tony, the one now is great. Also how about a strategy to assist him to get off the street. I mean he must want something better, safer. Tony did have the dream of a trailer, so..

    Also how to find the nephew..

    I like this blog just the way it is. I agree with Maya that photos are always welcome – of Tony and of things that are part of his life. Maybe give Tony a camera.

    I think if Tony gets a trailer, the blog is going to seriously go downhill.

  4. Maya Says:

    hehe, Jim, no it would be called, manwithtrailerspeaks :).

    thou doest jest, me thinks.

  5. Jim Says:

    Yes, I doest jest.

    That said, I’d be less interested in a blog about a guy living in a trailer. I mostly read this blog to get the perspective of somebody who lives on the fringe that homelessness represents. Of course, I’d be happy to lose an enjoyable blog-read if it means that Tony realizes his dreams.

    For me the blog is fine. I just wish more people would comment.
    Phil, you have put a lot of work in here and it must be depressing if you think you’re not getting anywhere but I bet you get a load of hits.
    This is a blog that I always check because I need to know how Tony is.
    You’re doing a great job, the two of you.
    Thanks.

    This is a fine blog just the way it is.

    As for housing for him: If he had the chance to live somewhere, not on the street, he will make the decision. Until then, this collaboration is very interesting and HUMAN and I love to read how he is doing.

    I like the blog too. The only thing I could suggest is that you comment more on the people Tony comes in daily contact with more often. Therefore you would be building the cast of ‘characters’, so to speak, in his life.
