I have been trying for over 4 weeks, to help. Debbie told me to get out of the house and do something-anything. So since i'm an old drywaller, i-I thought-new york is haveing a hard time. She said-go-get it done-give em a hand harve. But no one wants a free hand, I think I get it, but its tougher getting a free job then a paying job. on the take, i think thats the thought process. every one in my family thinks im synical, this is the reason why. hell, i just wanted to lend a hand. free dosent mean anything more then rippin you off these days. what a shame. im also shameful in so many way. i guess you could call me a jack mormon. well-you beinging a columnist, i spose you heard it all anyway. i was probably only looking for absolution or a pat on the back. new york-tough towns.
