Happy Thanksgiving, New York Style

Happy thanksgiving from Andrew Cuomo, NY Attorney General, that is.

I’ve been home with some sort of flu for two days and I wanted to wish everyone a happy thanksgiving. I couldn’t resist sharing the following ethical quandary facing Cuomo – a story New Yorkers know all too well:

For years, these guys (the UHO tables through NYC) raising money for the “homeless” have been aggressively after everyone walking by. They are collecting for the homeless – themselves, that is. Problem is that they have official sanction as a legitimate charity and they are not quite what we expected.

Basically, a guy figured out a way to professionalize begging in NY. I actually like it better than the non-professional beggars who can sometimes come across as threatening.

In NY, everything like this is about politics. Cuomo might have picked the wrong target this holiday season as it makes him look like a scrooge.
