"Threadbare," Okay, But Still...

Mr. Stafford is picking up the tab for three nights with meals at the hotel for scores of the normally uninvited and overlooked. He’s even promising gown, tuxedo and hair-dresser costs for those most in need. “We just need to get back to caring about one another,” Mr. Stafford told The Washington Post, paraphrasing the Bible: “To whom much is given, much is required.”

Mr. Stafford is one-upping Obama inaugural vows to “open this up to the public.” It’s heartening to contemplate a few of Washington’s steam-grate hoboes partying spiffy as expense-account insiders.
I want to know if the editor and writer who decided to go with the sensitive and oh-so-appropriate "steam-grate hoboes" to describe working poor or otherwise disadvantaged Americans also does children's parties.

"Steam-grate hoboes"? Really, dude?

That guy didn't give me an invite to his steam-grate hobo party. I suppose it's different if I am a soon-to-be steam-grate hobo instead of a current one. Fuck this economy, and fuck the fucking fuckers who ruined it.
