The of us there should’ve felt this might be the best solution to get folks in and out with out inflicting an excessive amount of of a visitors jam or taking on too many neighboring streets.
Still, whether or not they had been attempting to ship a message or not … the juxtaposition of determined, poor households flocking to a meals financial institution proper subsequent to a rich-person pit cease in the Sunshine State, ought to’ve been checked out a bit extra. It’s kinda dangerous optics … however so be it.
Hotels are hurting proper now too — and one thing tells us these two 4-star and 5-star accommodations haven’t got their regular clientele filling their suites in the mean time. Strange instances, certainly.
