If you get the ink version of the Fresno Bee (like us), then you saw it on Saturday morning. Right below the fold. A homeless dude taking a bath in a Fulton Mall fountain. No, it wasn't a story about how Fresno's homeless are the most hygiene conscious in the country. It was a story about the City Of Fresno turning on some of the Fulton Mall fountains.
Nice. Finally the city is doing something positive with the Fulton Mall. Things are looking up a little bit. Maybe I'll go check those fountains out...THEN BOOM: homeless dude in fountain.
Those backwardsass Fresnans that are scared of downtown just got their fodder for the next time they call Ray Appleton or Chris Daniels Daniel (or for comments on the Bee's website).
One picture. Two steps back for downtown.
