    And yet there are grinches out there who actually believe that these kids and their parents are simply lazy people living on the public dole.

    I wish there was some way to wave a magic wand over those folks that would suddenly snatch them out of their warm, secure, safe, food-filled homes and drop them into the same kinds of lives as the people they love to despise -- for just a month or two.

    Want to bet their attitudes wouldn't make an abrupt change?

    I was in San Diego lately where I met families living in county campgrounds because they have been evicted from their homes when they couldn't afford drastic increases in rent due to a severe housing shortage. All those I spoke with were working -- often at more than one job. Some were even teachers and other professionals.

    America is in serious trouble because we are allowing greed to consume our thinking and are abandoning compassion. The Golden Rule no longer applies unless it has a dollar sign on it.
