CATHY SEIPP THOUGHT IT WAS OKAY TO MAKE FUN OF AND LAUGH AT HOMELESS PEOPLE.

While reading an article about homeless people, Cathy Seipp thought she would show what a "kind
and caring" person she was by telling all of us about what she learned so far:


"So far I have learned...

1. Life on Skid Row is dangerous and miserable.

2. Most people there are drug addicts and/or mentally ill.

3. They have numerous physical ailments, and a hard time getting good health care.

4. Often they possess wheelchairs -- sometimes because they're handicapped, sometimes just for
convenience.

5. Hard to know what to do about people who won't take their anti-psychotic meds, but will keep
drinking and taking drugs.

Question: Was there anything in this series that readers did not already know?

Follow-up: How rude is it of me to ask the above question?"
