    A Book Club for the homeless....

    http://www.boston.com/news/local/mas...r_bond/?page=1

    I love this story for many reasons, none the least of which is that the lawyer featured here is in the law firm of my ex husband's attorney...it sounds funny but I thought my ex's attorney was an interesting guy. Maybe Resnik's philosophy has rubbed off on some of the juniors there...in any case there is an incredible beauty to this idea.

    Great story! I'm not good at helping the homeless. I have all the stereotypical bias about them. I'm a scaredy cat about people. This is such a great idea though! A way to reach out and share something of the mind.

    I think it's such a grand idea! Homeless people getting away from the stigmas society attaches to them for a bit, and also they get to lose themselves in some goods for awhile, then a have a good discussion about them.
