saddest thing you'll read today

South Korea is a nation supposedly full of Christians, but in reality, it's a nation full of NIMBY-ites. Matt is doing good work by pointing this social problem out, but he might need to translate his post into Korean to have a real impact on the conversation.

"For I was hungry, and you gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited me in; I needed clothes, and you clothed me; I was sick, and you looked after me; I was in prison and you visited me."

Then the righteous will answer him, "Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?"

The King will reply, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."

—Matthew 25:35-40

You would not believe the petty crap people pull because of housing prices. (Well, actually, you probably would.) I remember one area where a desperately needed road was never built because residents complained it would bring down housing prices by linking a more affluent neighborhood with a less affluent one located right next door. As a result, you could actually walk between the neighborhoods more quickly than you could drive.

So much for the public good.
