Another brief note...

I really hate the phrase 'the deserving poor'. How smug. How self-righteous. How ludicrous to believe that moral virtue is attained through the possession of a tax code and that those without it are redundant creatures, who should take hand-outs and 'harsh but fair' advice for those who chase the mighty dollar.

Why Bother?
