Woe, the idiocy. Libby does it again.

Without giving notice to the homeless until the middle of this morning, Loaves & Fishes announced that it is cancelling many of its services, tomorrow, for a Staff Retreat for the purpose of discussing its mission.

Let me clue you in, Libby:  Your mission begins with offering services reliably.

It is fortunate for America that you bombed out of the Air Force or the security of the United States would be imperiled.

This happens over and over and over again.

Loaves & Fishes is not a legitimate organization; it is a whorehouse. A legitimate organization thinks of its customers or those it serves. It has a desire to satisfy the very people it is there for. It wants to do well and bring something of value to the world. Hmmm, come to think of it Loaves & Fishes is much much worse than any whorehouse.

I would need to catalogue all the idiocy that comes from Loaves & Fishes' Board of Directors and Administration, but I am concerned that it would be thicker than a 1960 Sears & Roebuck Catalog -- but let's begin with the building that Libby will let the curtain down on on June 8. A building that cost over $1.5 million to construct.

And, what will it be? A building that will aid the homeless? Why, no. Something like that wouldn'd adequately appeal to L&F vanity. It is described by L&F as the new Welcoming Center slash Administration Building slash Warehouse.

It's brand spanking new. And further removed from where the homeless are; well down the street, so senior staff will never need to see any homeless; for it is not the homeless who are welcomed at the L&F complex, but donors. Come, come all you rich and foolish donors. Open your wallets; give to Libby; and for God's sake don't ask any questions.

The Mission Five Years Ago, And Today

I have spent the night the past two weeks plus at the Union Gospel Mission and am having an excellent time of it -- not only regards to sleeping in the dorm that the mission has, but also listening to the sermons that are delivered in the early evening. The Christmas music that is performed is also splendid. [And the food -- the FOOD -- has been fantastic during my stay so far! A happier Tom there couldn't be.] I chatted with a pal last night about The Mish – about how things were about five years ago when we both used the mission’s services frequently, and how thing are, today.
Five years ago, there were a lot scuffles between the guys when the front gate was opened in the early afternoon and in the area near the contact window there were some brawls as guys fought over where guys were in line to get a bed in the dorm.
Nowadays, however, the mission is very much a peaceful place both on the grounds of the facility and and out on the street.
I do not know what transformative eve…

Homeless Sacramentans lose case that would have given them the right to set up outdoor camping

8/11/13 I certainly give attorneys Mark Merin and Cat Williams credit for pursuing a case against the city of Sacramento to give homeless Sacramentans the right to set up tents and a campsite. I wanted them to win their case, but they didn't. They lost it.

BUT, it is also necessary to look at the particulars of the case that Merin and Williams brought and see that the situation underlying the court case was not very compelling.

During the period eight years ago when 22 homeless campers set up their tents and brought in supplies to Mark Merin's vacant lot at C Street, near 12th, there was loud noise and plenty of other mayhem. Drug dealers were on the street encouraging buys from the campers. The Hernandez couple that lived in a house nearby were constantly being taunted by the campers, disrupting their lives.

Per always with Safe Ground camps, calm was deserted for the sake of boisterousness.

Leader John Kraintz and the other Safe Grounders would claim to have signed strict a…

After a Three-Month Hiatus, a Fall from a Ladder & a Broken Wrist, Evangelist Jimmy Roughton Returns to Union Gospel Mission to Preach

After being away from Union Gospel Mission for a quarter of a year, Jimmy Roughton returned to preach at UGM on the cold night of December 13 -- despite suffering [a little? a lot? dunno.] from a fall from a ladder that likely immediately preceded a significant injury (a wrist that was broken).


It was good to see his group from Capital Free Will Baptist Church up on the pulpit, with Roughton rough-and-ready to seduce and inspire the happily-captivate crowd at UGM.


Roughton told us in his opening words that he was now in his 27th year coming to the mission.

I recall the first preaching I had heard from Roughton on June 13, 2009. At that time and up to the current time, Roughton is the only preacher I had ever heard evoke Pascal's Wager -- which is something he would do, occasionally thereafter at the mission. He would evoke Pascal's wager, yet again, last night [12/13/17].


Pascal's wager

Last night, Jimmy evoked Pascal's Wager. He did so near the end of his talk, citing …
