Haven't heard in ages; now everyone is just "homeless".

It may be, in part, a linguistic thing.

First, it seems to me there are more homeless men than women. But second, "Bag Man" means something entirely different.

That money isn't "lost"; Sam the Eagle and his missus know exactly where it went, but they aren't telling.

I rarely give money to the homeless but when I do it's only to older women. I feel bad for them. If any group deserves shelter and food it's them. Instead of going after DeBozio why not go after Bloomberg? That SOB's net worth is over $50 billion. Use most of that money to help people you cheap SOB! What are you going to do with all that money when you are dead?

I was working at the PABT from 1979 to 1982. I remember the bag ladies who were regulars (or residents) there.

No, they weren't yet upgraded to "homeless" at that time.

Maybe it has something to do with recycling? I still see many older ladies on the move, collecting cans and bottles.
