“Ennes cooked at restaurants in Florida before running his own in Manhattan, Orfeo, for a few years. Now, he works himself into a frenzy three days a week, creating meals for some of the estimated 260,000 homeless in New York City.”

That’s over a quarter million: almost three times the population of the city I live in.

How is it there aren’t hundreds of bodies in the streets everyday?

That number is not what I expected. I mean God, where are we in the world that this is going on? There are people making so much money it's criminal. Look at these multi-millionaires and billionaires... If they gave up even the smallest sum of their dough to stop this, the problem would cease to exist. Same concept with some of the poorer countries like Africa. Some of the wealthiest people live in certain parts of Africa and yet the majority of the country is absolutely forsaken! It's criminal man! I can't even get my head around it.

Kudos on the thread Yi, I'm surprised no one else has gotten a piece of this.
