[quote comment=”114003″]I don’t want to get into the NIMBY argument because the attitudes of some posters on this site makes me emotionally and physically ill. I wonder constantly what was the person before they were begging for change? What happened to them to make them have to start begging for change? I spoke with a homeless person yesterday. He once had three acres of land and a dog. I could tell it wasn’t BS. How does someone go from three acres of land and a dog to having to beg for change?[/quote]
You should drink some Thunderbird, MD 20/20, Cisco or Night Train to take the edge off as you go back to your home. I will answer your inquiry:
1. The person was the child of a crackhead or someone with a mental illness;
2. The beggars are good at laying on the BS – I am selling a bridge that connects Brooklyn and Manhattan – any interest?
3. They owned property in fantasy land and owned a herd of unicorns, when the unicorns left the land it went sour. The Blue Sky Mining Company didn’t save him.

Save your money, donate to cancer research. These people are lost causes, time to thin the herd.

Re 25. (& prior): Grand, really—don’t you want to change your tag?

How about “GrandVulcan”?

The grand lack of compassion and all…

Re 19.: What a concept, Katie, to want to have your weekends! You want some down-time? How dare you!!

Does your firm allow any time away for community service? Wiley (publishing) here, encourages that, with great effect in town.

(I was v. lucky to work for an investment bank that encouraged same, esp. around its philanthropic focus.)

If you (& others who might read here) want to put a few hours in here & there, our Jubilee Center is a great place to work with children who greatly benefit from small even amounts of time invested here.

Sorry to veer slightly off-topic.
