Interfaith Ministries purchases the PrimeWay building

Recommended Posts

In somewhat related news, I noticed that the lot for the Men's Center at Alabama between Fannin and San Jacinto has been cleared. There is now a construction trailer sitting in the lot.

Awesome! I bet that will be a major feature point for the Ventana at Midtown.

It supports substance abuse. Take any money you'd give to individuals and give it to organizations that help the homeless.

Perhaps. But I don't give them money with a view toward reforming them. Nothing I do will change their behavior.

If you don't give (and others follow suit) it will become a bad intersection and the person will move on.

It's not about changing their behavior, it's about making funds available for things that will help them, not hurt them. Would you hand a suicidal person a bottle of pills? When someone isn't thinking clearly, why put the object of their destruction in their hands?

Believe me, I'm totally opposed to these NIMBY types on this topic, but charities are much better suited to provide aid to people, and make sure they get fed and clothed.

Because Congress passed legislation exempting non-profits from paying income tax.

Just for the hell of it or was there some compelling reason? Something rational? Could it be taken as yet another failed attempt by congress to do... well... nothing?

We should throw the lot of them into some sort of gladiator style bouts. Or something akin to The Running Man. Either way they could fight to the death. And we could charge admission to see this - live.

Yesterday I saw a panhandler at an intersection that was holding up a Bud Light sign. Easily amused as I am, I just had to give him a couple of dollars. It's hard not to appreciate the honesty!

Yeah I do quite like it when they're honest. I had one approach me at the Montrose/Westheimer Valero. "Man you know I'll be honest, I could really use a beer right now."

Hard to argue with that.
