9.09 When You Can't Afford To Wipe Your A$$
Lawyers are donating toilet paper to the Jefferson County Jail and encouraging others to do the same, after some of their incarcerated clients reported that it's in short supply.
Lawyer John Lentine said Tuesday several inmates told him independently that the jail is rationing toilet paper, and jail officials confirmed for him that supplies are low.
"I'm not pointing fingers at the sheriff's department or the (county) commission," said Lentine, who on Saturday dropped off more than 400 rolls of toilet paper at the jail. "What I'm saying is when you house people, you have a legal duty to provide basic needs."
It may be your legal duty, or contractual obligation, or desire....but when money runs out...money runs out. AND MONEY IS RUNNING OUT ALL ACROSS AMERICA Thank goodness the lawyers stepped in...otherwise a lot of inmates would be itching in the outhouse.

AS BENNY B TELLS YOU THE RECESSION IS OVER????????
ORLANDO -- A foundation dedicated to helping the working poor is forced to shut down most of its operations.
Destiny Foundation has operated a health clinic, thrift store, job outreach center and food center for 8 years.
However, its founder said over the last months demand has skyrocketed, while donations from corporate and church sponsors have dwindled.
Currently, everything but the food outreach center has closed its doors, and operators said they aren't sure how much longer they can keep it open.
"It's going to hurt. Like I said, we are on a very tight budget and unemployment checks here in Florida is very small," said Don Skow, who is unemployed.
"I really can say it's been a blessing to the city of Orlando. I can say I'm sad to see it’s closing down," said Vassie Roofe, who is retired.
Destiny's health clinic provided free medical care to uninsured children.
The Food Outreach sells groceries at discount prices through subsidies to low income families.
