Someone’s Gotta Do It


“He’s never satisfied unless he can stage a public situation. This isn’t something that you do by standing up and shouting about it.” This is what L.A. County Supervisor Gloria Molina said when homeless activist Ted Hayes refused to leave the microphone, shouting and begging for a program to help the homeless find a way out of unsafe and dirty conditions (Jan. 8). I say to Molina and the Board of Supervisors, there would be no need for Hayes to shout if you would do your job and not leave it to him to do your dirty work.
