- Leo: You know, when did we become so afraid of homeless people all of a sudden? When did that happen? You know, when I was a kid, those guys coming around all the time, asking if they can mow the lawn or clean out the garage or paint the house numbers on the curb. You know? A lot of them, they just co me back from the war, they couldn't find a job, but nobody called them homeless. I mean, 'cause they were home. You know, the whole country was there home.
- Mick: Yeah. We've made poverty a crime.
