Lifestyles of the Poor and Invisible

Just a few quick notes about some things that have been going on recently:

A friend told me that a former VA doctor he knows has become homeless. The man resigned because of the horrible policies that we might have all seen in the paper recently. Unable to pay his student loans and get any UI (our state does not allow anyone to quit a job because of the employers lack of ethics), he has ended up on the street.

One study has said that one of the traits of people who are always broke is that they may be too sympathetic and get taken advantage of easily, due to low self-esteem. I know a number of people like that. It’s a shame to see someone with a good heart sink into homelessness.

Well, out of time.

Freelance writer. Activist on homeless issues. 48 years old. I write about subjects that need to be examined closely and thoughtfully. The idea for Brain Sections came from reading a book about abandoned asylums. I wanted to set a suspense story in that setting. The inclusion of crazed scientists turning homeless people into zombies is what makes the story unique. View all posts by tjmcfee
