Modern inventions good for me, not so good for homeless people:
Ipods. It's that much easier to ignore someone asking for your change on the street when you can't even hear them. With the abundance of ipod-clad pedestrians out there, the plight of the homeless just got a little more difficult. You can blame Apple for that.*
*I feel like I should put a disclaimer here. I really am not unsympathetic to homeless people. Far from it! I also have no idea as to why I've been posting a lot of stuff lately that sounds so blatantly anti-homeless .
