This week’s Pitch and 30 things we learned this week

This week’s Pitch is on the street and so is Darlene White, the subject of Casey Lyons’ feature, “The Oldest Professional.” White sells $5 blow jobs so she can buy $20 rocks of crack. She claims she was once lit on fire by a John. It’s a hard life out there.

Also, Martin looks at the dog park mess. Harper and Gintowt preview the Crossroads Music Fest (so does the Buckle Bunny). Ferruzza reviews Zest, and Scherstuhl tells you whether you should see L’Histoire d”Amour.
