Thanksgiving On Skid Row
L.A.'s skid row is still rough. This Thanksgiving things got better though, if only for a little while, when Kirk Douglas, Harrison Ford, Mayor Villaraigosa and some other famous/powerful people dropped by the neighborhood to serve meals to its residents. It's easy to call this kind of thing a patronizing token gesture. We're not going to. With less than 30% of Californians volunteering at all, we applaud Harrison and co.
Kirk Douglas also had this to say: "Their involvement will help their souls as much as it helps the guests being served..." Feeding the homeless and helping celebrity souls: a win-win.
