I couldn't agree with your editorial more! I am currently out of work and things are tough on public assistance. I don't have any extra cash, other than the money I make, holding up a sign that says: "out of work, 2 year old to feed, please help" (which really is a money maker btw). The disability barely covers my Lexus payment and the payments on my Rolex! If you can imagine. That's a hard job, standing in the heat and rain with that stupid sign. I can only take a smoke break every 15 minutes otherwise the suckers get suspicious. Sometimes the skateboarders roll-me and take my sign. Then I have to invest hard-earned money to have a new one made. It's such an endeavor, you wouldn't believe.

I could not agree with your editorial more strongly. In fact, just the other day I passed a man who was standholding a sign that read, "Out of work. Two year old to feed. Please help." I turned my car around and headed back towards the man. My intention was to give him $10. However, as I approached I noticed that the man was smoking a cigarette.

Why does Sheldon Silver's name pop up every time something no good is mentioned?
