New Stooges movie based on life at Loaves and Fishes

The leading characters in the new Stooges movie are based on the top three administraitors at Loaves and Fishes (obviously).  [The "1D" mentioned in text in the pic above refers to the movie being shown in a new format:  One dimension.]
"Black-and-White Hats" --  known to homeless inmates as "Green Hats" in garb they formerly wore -- stand aready at the entrance of Fiendship Park, formally called [as the arch over the park entrance says] "Sisters of Mercy Orphanage."
As at Loaves and Fishes, in the movie nuns appeal to a lower power, Mephistopheles.  
A new movie that opens on April 13, titled The Three Stooges, is based on life at the Sacramento homeless-services charity Loaves & Fishes. The three central characters in the film are based on top adminstraitors at the bumbling, fumbling non-profit.

The movie involves the Stooges living a Life of Reilly in their luxurious administration suites high atop the Clem Kadiddlehopper Warehouse, Welcoming Center [Hello, helloo, hellooo: $$$] and Firing Range*, a distant trek apart from the "little people," homeless folk, who are penned in at the Sisters of Mercy Orphanage and Mud Wallow.

In the early part of the movie, the stooges try to chop each other in the knee, wham each other on the nose and poke each other in the eye, but find contentment sticking a finger up their own noses.  Later, the stooges find greater contentment sticking their finger up a place south of the small of their back (and far south of the small of their brains).

The Head Stooge takes it on herself to go visit "the little people," one day, when she finds out the church ladies are in Fiendship Park passing out sack lunches.  "I must honor everybody with my presence!" she announces. "They shall have my benediction."

Quickly, Head Stooge puts on a fluffy blouse and sparkly Ellen Degeneres pants that she bought from pennies.  "Well, at least they're 'generes' in the waste line," cracks Larry.  "Woot! Woot! Woot!" says Curly Joe.

At Fiendship Park, Head Stooge offers grace to each and all, and luxurates in the feelings of love that each of the homeless scum must surely be feeling for her.

"Eat me, Mother Teresa,"  Head Stooge thinks to herself, regarding whom she thinks is her prime competition for Top Saint.  "When you're left in a cavern on the bottom floor, I'll have a top-floor, corner mansion in the Humongous Cube in New Jerusalem!  I'll have a sky roof! And I'll be 1375 miles away from homeless scum, who'll be way way way down there on their safe ground below! Bwa-ha-ha!  Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!"
* Curly Joe recently fired Mark Bell, the Poet Laureate of Homeless World, author of "The Hobo Speaks." ... following in the L&F practice of always kicking a homeless person when he challenges the demigods.

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 …
