DC Mayor Offensive to Even Me

I'm all for telling homeless people to quit drinking and get a job, but this is basically throwing salt on their wounds.
About 100 homeless people were guests of the mayor's office Thursday for a screening of "The Pursuit of Happyness," the real-life story of a homeless man
who worked his way to becoming a millionaire.
The crowd of mostly homeless adults and elderly people groaned at some of the familiar difficulties faced by Will Smith's character, Chris Gardner, and clapped at
his triumphs.
Wow. What's next, showing dying cancer patients a movie about a lucky cancer patient that survived? Showing burn vicitms a movie about a burn victim who won Miss America?
