Don't miss the debut of Roldo Bartimole's new blog focused on issues related to poverty and social justice.
Here's Roldo's take:
THIS BLOG IS NOT MINE. OTHERS NEED TO CARRY THE BURDEN.
I hope that social workers, educators, reporters, physicians, nurses, advocates of hunger and homeless centers, social service agents, pastors, ministers, rabbis who are unable to write what they want in their newspapers, the poor themselves (who could tell the story more truthfully), others who in their jobs come in contact with poverty issues will tell their stories here. We want to know who is suffering, how and why. We want as much attention to the distressed as celebrities of all kinds.
Somebody suggested that it be called the “Squeaky Wheel.” So be it. Now let’s hear some squawking.
