Just opened my e-mail to find a very cool request: an author in California wants to help me deliver some of his books to the homeless woman I wrote about today -- she's a big fan of his horror stories.
What I wrote today was a follow-up to Wednesday column, about a woman who lives on the street and came to the rescue of a former city housing commissioner. Tommy Massaro had collapsed while walking to the ER at Hahnemann Hospital. (He's got heart problems.) And a woman named Tina, who has lived near 18th and Vine since getting out of prison in May, came to his aid, when others drove or walked by. Today's piece describes my visit with her after Sister Mary Scullion's people tracked her down for me and Massaro.
Here's the column.
