I didn't think anyone could do more to help the homeless people of Broward than New Times -- our boxes are frequently used to store blankets and the pages of the "print product" can both warm someone and serve as a feces receptacle, among other applications.

With temperatures expected to drop into the low 40s tonight, Sean Cononie and his crew at the The Homeless Voice shelter in Hollywood will be out doing a little cold weather outreach from 8 p.m. to midnight. They'll be looking under bridges and other places homeless people congregate and plan to give out coffee, blankets and a warm, safe place to spend the night.
It's a nice thing to hear, especially considering this horrifying story from former NYT writer (and true throwback) Charlie LeDuff. The hearts of humans can indeed be colder than ice.
