Oh, the (Lack of) Humanity

Filed under: Across the Universe — Chinmayi @ 2:04 pm

Something Tony Long wrote at Wired. Excerpts:

“I’ll agree it does him little good. But in the moment it took me to fish a dollar from my pocket, press it into his dirty hand and wish him luck, I connected with him, one human being to another”

“But a lot of self-involved yuppies are still around, still wrinkling their noses in disgust at every down-and-outer they pass. Unless, of course, they simply ignore the poor bastard. It’s unseemly behavior in the city of St. Francis. But it’s equally unattractive in any place that values the importance of a single human being.”

[whole thing here]
