As I was avoiding doing the bathroom, I was flicking through channels and came onto 47 and the end of Undercover Boss USA and the boss in question was saying he was going to a homeless peoples project, Solutions For Change,and was going to donate $50,000 for them to play golf and have the equipment to do so. I though Yes the top priority of any homeless person is to play golf in some swanky club, I thought if I was homeless I would probably want a large bottle of whisky and an extra blanket, not golf.

Substance abuse is a large cause of homelessness, I reckon the bottle of whisky really wouldn't help.

Not sure about swanky golf clubs, but taking part in ordinary everyday leisure pursuits helps a great deal for anyone who is having a hard time of it.

What homeless people really need is opera.

What homeless people really need is to move somewhere warm so being homeless isn't a problem for them.

Homelessness is about more than being cold. Homeless people need foppish theatre types in their lives.
