Newsletter News Brief: A Helping Hand Or A Slap In The Face?

New York City's current Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, has reportedly initiated a program through his administration that offers homeless New Yorkers a free one-way ticket to any location on the planet.

According to The New York Daily News, "The free ride is part of a $500,000-a-year Bloomberg administration program to keep the homeless out of the shelter system...City officials said there were no limits on where a family can be sent; all it takes is for a relative to take them in when they arrive."
