I was walking along 34th Street between Lexington and Third Avenues and heard a tall down-on-his-luck street man utter the following astonishing request: Please give me something to eat; anything a little garlicky would be deeply appreciated! If I hadn't been on my way to a doctor's appointment I would have stopped into the nearby Thai restaurant and ordered something for him. I've had bad experiences offering street people food I happened to be carrying learning that they really wanted money and probably to use for booze or drugs. One actually flung my offering of food out of my hand. But this guy touched my heart by his request--I knew he was one of us--a food person. When I left my appointment I looked for him but he had changed location and was no where to be seen.
