From GEIST 80
"I agree with Dan Post's blog about the disturbing new public appetite for 'homeless talent.' I befriended a homeless guy that hangs outside a strip mall where I often go to pick up my lunch. Sometimes I buy himn coffee or give him a few coins, but he never, ever asks me. He just seems happy to talk and not be sneered at or given the cold shoulder. He's a good guy, just down on his luck. Having been briefly homeless once, dirt poor and not sure where my next meal was coming from, I can empathize with him. Everyone should try being poor for a week, just to see what it's like to have nothing"
