    Yep! It also starred Tippi Hedren in one of the few roles she did well, IMO. Beautiful woman, but not much of an actress.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Not at all. I live in a city with numerous food kitchens and they are located in areas accessible to the homeless without intruding on the peace, safety, or livelihood of their neighbors.

    Pero, I found the movie I was looking for from Twilight Zone!. It's in Season 5, and I have ordered it from Amazon.com, and I'll have it in a few days. Maybe I'll watch it on Halloween! ! A whole season full of Twilight Zones for $16 - not a bad price! Happy, happy!

    I find the reasons for wanting to move the homeless rather superficial, and that is what is bothering me. Its a nicely worded attempt to kick the can down the road instead of finding real solutions.
    Feeding them, by whatever means and wherever it may be won't solve the homelessness issue at all. As a nation, we have accomplished so much, so why can't we come up with a solution to treat our fellow citizens, many of which may be veterans, as the human beings they are instead of shoving them away? Moving them down the block may give the appearance that all is well, but it is not.
    Lol, and no, I don't have a solution either, other than helping out as much as I can, and thanking you and your family for doing the same.
    No veteran should be homeless. That's our lousy government that did that. Every vet should be entitled to housing when needed.

    Perhaps that should extend beyond veterans:

    It's cheaper to give homeless men and women a permanent place to live than to leave them on the streets.

    That’s according to a study of an apartment complex for formerly homeless people in Charlotte, N.C., that found drastic savings on health care costs and incarceration.

    Giving the homeless food isn't illegal anywhere, Kitty. Not in any city or state. The headline of the NPR article was very misleading.

    Helping people eat could be a crime??? With Fines?

    Does this make sense?
    This is what happens when a society abandons it's Christian roots.
