How absolutely lovely for the media (who by and large don't like to cover those smelly homeless losers, as we all know) to come to the aid of someone from their own ranks. Oh, the humanity; the absolute horror of seeing a honey-voiced, honest-to-god radio man, one of their own, reduced to poverty. Let's rescue him! And screw all those raspy-voiced homeless people!
Nothing against Williams — on the contrary. He seems like a nice guy and I wish him the best. I'm just wondering where the breathless, bordering-on-self-congratulory media coverage is when journalists are confronted with a homeless former store clerk, a fisherman, a software engineer, or a teacher.
