I read in the Oct. 1 Hot Property column that homeless activist Casey Kasem and his wife, Jean, purchased a home in the Holmby Hills for $6.8 million.
Naturally, a $6.8-million residence is a minimum necessity and quite normal, especially with all the homelessness and poverty the Kasems and others whine about.
Kasem could go down as the greatest humanitarian in U.S. history by making the supreme sacrifice: selling the $6.8-million place and buying one valued at a mere $1 million. Then Kasem could take the $5.8-savings and make a cash contribution to each and every homeless person in Southern California.
With this, the homeless could rent apartments or houses, and get off the streets. Then, with a place of their own, they could go out and look for and obtain employment. (There are plenty of available jobs.)
