Since we started tracking our Web site traffic about a month ago, one pattern has stayed consistent: more people search the Internet for Ivory Wilson, a Street Sense vendor who frequently contributes short fiction to the paper, than for any other vendor. One such search originated in Tokyo. Who knew Ivory had a fan in Japan?
Ivory usually sells papers at the corner of 7th and E streets, NW, and recently published a poem about his regular customers. One of them, a local writer, recently blogged about her impressions of Ivory and her struggle to reconcile their friendship with his past as a pimp. Read her post here.
