    • That’s what made me so angry. This man was hectoring the poor bum, telling him, “You ain’t goin’ nowhere!” Belittling him and being a complete asshole. I asked the guy, “Are you going to give him any money?” The guy in the suit replied, “Sometimes.” I told him, “Either give him money or leave him alone.”

    Good for you. What an ass. Like harassing the poor guy was going to change his reality! I hope the suit gets the chance to sit on a side walk and ask for help one day. Maybe having someone yell at him will magically make things different for him!

    • I was so angry at the guy and felt so sorry for the guy with the sign. Sure we knew it was bogus. Anybody who frequents the Blvd. as I do knows. He was telling the guy, “You’re going nowhere!” So cruel. Unforgivable.
