Hi AL -
desperation - I see it occasionally; heck , in the 80's I remember a psychotic busker...

poverty - visit any medium size or big city in South America...no comparison...

selfishness - yes our culture values selfishness (individualism), but quite a few current and past performers in the Boston/Cambridge area are willing to share - perhaps the more selfish stick out in our minds more....

any conversations I've had this year, I haven't heard anyone say that they are making good $$ on the street this year; in fact, routine anecdotes about how bad it is...
by the way, does anybody ever do Worcester MA?? or is that just too ridiculous?
and oh yeah, did Gav ever make it to the US?
Ciao - Kev

Boulder, Colorado's Pearl Street Mall has been reconstructed over the past 4 years to include new spaces for street performers to stage their art.

Boulder would have been much easier for me to busk had they done this earier. As it is, I'll stay retired from 20 years of busking worldwide.
