    Recently I was in a deli waiting in line to buy a sandwich and a guy asked me if I would buy him lunch. He appeared to be homeless and a bit stoned. I said OK. When we got to the counter to order the look on the face of the woman taking orders told me she was shocked I was doing what I was doing. Literally shaking her head at me. Then, I sat down and ate lunch with the guy, asking him a few questions, and chatting about the weather. The woman literally came up to me and asked why I was sitting with this 'filthy' man. I told her off and promised that I would never come to their restaurant again.

    She said, please don't, if you plan to bring in men like that!

    The lack of compassion some people have makes my heart hurt. I am with the diarist here.....and believe that is a trait of liberals vs. conservatives. The hate and selfishness I see coming from the right today gets worse and worse. We need to remember that most of us are a paycheck away from being homeless, and a society only works if we look out for each other.
