Hypothesis: Huge amounts of money leads to chronic insensitivity.
Case Studies: “Pharma bro” Martin Shkreli. And introducing: San Francisco tech entrepreneur Justin Keller who penned an open letter to the mayor and police chief opining about how his Presidents Day weekend had been ruined by homeless people.
Keller argued in the letter that wealthy like himself got an education and worked hard to be where they are and, “I shouldn’t have to see the pain, struggle, and despair of homeless people to and from my way to work every day.”
Wow. So not nice. The Web erupted, predictably, in cyber outrage. See story for the reason for his letter and the responses from the wider world.
