What The ??

What The ??

         I read an article in the Alligator ( local college paper ) about the soup kitchen. To stay at the shelter one must go to the police station to receive written clearance to make use of any shelter assistance. the clearance must be updated every month. O.K. I guess it makes sense to insure a person has no current active warrants. what a hassle just to use the phone or get a shower. One person interviewed was happy because she said it will keep the riff-raff out. She also stated she has been taking meals there for something like 10 years. It was until recently that anyone hungry could eat, just get in line and give them your name. The meal limit was changed from meals served (130 ) to hours of operation after a big campaign and much picketing. The soup kitchen now doesn't have to worry about trying to feed all that come to them hungry. The volume of people coming in for the meal has declined to a trickle. Go figure. Things got worse for the hungry and homeless here in Gainesville FL. I really don't think the social problem has been solved, It never is. The photo accompanying the article showed one man sitting at a table by himself eating where there was until recently standing room only. Way to go geniouses.
