The Soul of 'Writers Row' Shines Through

January 25, 1990

I was struck by the juxtaposition of two articles on the front page of the Jan. 10 View section: "Writers Row" about homeless artists and their struggle to keep the muse alive despite the agonies of poverty, and "Passions Grounded in Shoes" about women who collect large numbers of ultra-expensive designer shoes.

I would not suggest that these women refrain from indulging in their passion. But, perhaps, in a spirit of social responsibility, they could find it in their hearts to donate the boxes the shoes come in to the less fortunate who may find them useful for repairing holes in the ceilings of their cardboard apartments.
