    keeps giving. The City of New York - not so much.

    What Is a Gift?

    On Monday, NYCHA chairman John Rhea visited a public housing complex that had been without power, water, or heat since Hurricane Sandy. He told the residents they would be required to pay full rent despite having no services, but that they'd get a rent credit in January, calling it "a nice little Christmas present."

    It seems that Rhea needs a lesson in what constitutes a present and what doesn't.
    Last fall, the New York City mayor's office and police department tried to shut down the Occupy Wall Street movement by every means at their disposal. This fall -- working alongside many other grassroots groups, churches, and individuals to distribute donations and share resources with communities hit by the storm -- Occupy has ended up doing the city's job for them. While the city devoted huge efforts to making sure Wall Street could get back to work as quickly as possible, folks like these -- who have never been given "presents" from the city -- have stepped in to fill the void for everyone else.

    Paranoia strikes deep. Into your life it will creep. It starts when you're always afraid. You step out of line, the man come and take you away. - S. Stills
