    For what it is worth – 60 Minutes did a piece on the roughest area in Colombia. How the streets and towns were overrun with drugs, gangs, murder, etc. What this one civilian did was amazing. I am in no way comparing Antioch to this place but it is worth watching as it turned the area around into a metropolitan city where people are no longer afraid to go. Very interesting. We’ve got to do something.

    There they were all weekend, again, panhandling. It is so disgusting. I tell them I would call police – they just shrug. They don’t care.
