    as far as I can tell, it is as a result of the compassion free society in which we live / the folks in positions of power could simply care less / it is not a blip on their radar / they are making too much money, are too smugly convinced that they are doing the right thing / and the plight of the less fortunate is uncomfortable, and unsettling . it rocks the boat, and believe me, the boat needs to be rocked. please look at Washington County as a classic example of ignorant and self-satisfied elitism / the rent crisis here is staggering.
