Update San Diego 11/26/2010
Just seen the story on the 50,000 seniors that live in poverty at Angel's Depot mission, re: " Under the Radar" comments in the Letters 11/24 10 of the San Diego Reader, page 4. The word senior in San Diego seems to mean a lot of different things in this area of the country. If you were in the Navy it means you are over the hill when you come back dissabled or at 38 when you have your 20 in and can hit the gate and sit on the dock the rest of your life on the government. If you worked for the San Diego City government, it means you can become one as soon as they send you home because you broke a rule and filed a law suit for a few million for wrongfull employment disscrimination. If you join a religious organization or some non-profit it means that you become one as soon as you are born, and lastly if you are homeless and find out you can make more money in the street tax free than you can working and paying taxes to support the latter you can be one. So you have many choices, pick one, I am still working and feel a pride the I am a modern American paying my way in life. I will continue to do soo as long as I live.
