Hello,

A few weeks ago I came across a homeless man on the side of the road, standing in the sweltering heat and the sun. I gave him an extra can of sodapop I had in my purse. He asked if I knew where he might be able to find a construction job. Sadly, I didn't.


On the way from picking up one of my last paychecks today I spoke to a homeless woman on the street corner. I had nothing to give her to drink, and I usually don't carry cash, but I had a dollar in a pocket so I gave it to her so she could go get a drink.

We spoke of her plight and in my brief discussion, she mentioned she was using battery operated fans to be able to sleep at night and that six people had died so far due to the heat. I'm not sure if that's just at the shelter she goes to or city wide.

She said she has two battery powered fans she uses at night, they go through 8 D batteries each, so she pays 22 dollars a day to be a little cooler. Others aren't so fortunate.

I glanced at my car thermostat, I'd been on the road for about a half hour, it read "108".

I'm not terribly religious, but please send your positive thoughts and prayers to these people.

Many of them are folks like 99ers, normal good people with terribly bad luck, who've lost everything and now are dying on the streets in the sweltering heat.
