Letter: The homeless should be so lucky
Re: ‘The homeless aren’t a joke’ (Metro, May 13)
Kudos to fellow reader Chris Berg for chastening Metro for its “joke” comparing Jake Gyllenhaal to the homeless. As a veteran and former member of the New York City homeless population, I can assure the editors and readers of Metro that Gyllenhaal did NOT look homeless. He was smiling and dressed comfortably inside an air-conditioned sports arena sitting next to two multimillionaire entertainers watching a sporting event. The homeless should be so lucky.
