    Yikes. This is unexpected, but speaks a lot about the current state of our country. No controversy, no care.

    This just proves my point. That when you mention community on this website...99.9% run and hide.

    Best of luck to the homeless person!

    Much easier to bark an opinion on the internet as absolute than get off your ass and contribute even if just for a little bit, to your community.

    Almost 160K now... that should easily cover undergrad. Hopefully, he'll get into med school to spend the rest.

    Yeah, weird.

    Good for him. I certainly laud his dedication. I hope he's able to fulfill his dreams and doesn't blow the golden opportunity that the public has given him.
