Was it 1713 that the word lemming was first used, and like a lemming I scrolled, following one headline after another, heading for the ledge of one bizarre screaming headline after another until I stopped at this one 269,269.
What could you imagine that number represents. Children. 269,269 children are homeless in California. I’m not even going to cite the many reasons, whys and wherefores of how that many ended up homeless, Nor am I going to throw fiery darts at anyone. I am remembering a line from “Boys N da Hood” Either they don’t know, don’t show, or don’t care about what’s going on in the hood.
