Evidently Silvio thought he had better things to do than rescue fellow citizens who were having problems.
Millions of problems, like freezing to death and starving to death.
So, one of the bards of anti-establishment counter culture laid down some lyrics to shine some light on the scene:
Silvio(Silvio, by Bob Dylan). The homeless American in the photo attached to this post had frozen to death and was encased in solid ice.
Silver and gold
Won't buy back the beat of a heart grown cold
I gotta go
Find out something only dead men know
Who knows for how long. Kids played hockey near by, noticed the homeless American, and went on about their business.
House republicans played their fiddles and went on about their business today after voting against an economic recovery package yesterday. As homelessness, joblessness, and hopelessness continued to increase in America.
Meanwhile, in the world around America, tens of thousands of children starved to death just like they did yesterday.
