      I agree with CK - too many handouts. Mostly it seems to be religous groups that are handing out food and clothing and other things to the homeless. These people say they are doing God's work, but what they are doing is being the most effective enablers on Earth.

      I have a homeless relative who says that he doesn't want to work, and it is easy not to because he is given everything he needs. He has total freedom and nobody to answer to. He is young, able bodied, intelligent, talented, and...... lazy. Thanks Church people for enabling him and helping him live his lazy dream! I think he should be ashamed of himself, but they just tell him that God loves him.

      I lived @ Haight & Central from 1977-83 and it was a lot more destitute. I was the same age as these kids, knew some of them and never had the slightest inclination to join them. Really sad.

      Love that expression. I lived @ 1327 Haight from 1977-83 and the scene was much the same w/o the shops n' such, just boarded up storefronts & bars. Upon my rt visits it seems a bit better.

      Mr. Folini,
      I noticed your response to ibbetania. I want to use this photo on a project website: whosoutthere.wordpress.com/.
      I plan to crop it a bit to bring the woman closer. Please let me know if this is not ok with you.
      Thank you,
      Vaughn McIlrath

      : Do we really need to involve god in this? If god exists and is our friend, why is watching those people suffering while destroying their lives without doing anything? We can live without this kind of friends.

      The fact that you know one individual who bevahes that way doesn't stand for the millions of people who would like to improve their situation but whose life depends on the aid they get and who would die of starvation, get frozen on the streets, or feel totally lonely and detached from society if there weren't volunteers who are there to lend a hand. People like you make a world worse.
