Thousands of down-on-their-luck adults do nothing more with their day than clutch onto a chair. This passes for normal in some quarters of the city.

"I hate that musical chair game," Ruben said. He said he'd rather live next to a corpse.


Now that is cold.

The MSNBC version was even cheerier, but only because it brought more extra depressing deaths into the fold:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28916090/

Quote
Separately, a 67-year-old man was found frozen and covered in snow in his truck outside his Detroit-area home. Daniel Hayes Jr.'s body was found Tuesday by men looking for scrap metal. He was sitting in the front seat of his truck with the door open, The Ann Arbor News reported.

Police say Hayes may have died from a heart attack or other cause and may have been dead for two weeks. There were no signs of foul play. He apparently had been living in his truck; police said his house had no heat or water. His two dogs were found starved to death in their nearby dog house.

Elsewhere in the United States a woman froze to death in a remote cabin in Montana. Her common-law husband, suffering from hypothermia and starving, was found propped up against her body, with an array of weapons spread in a half circle in front of him, authorities said.

Mickey Charlene Davis, 67, had probably been dead for about two weeks when authorities reached the cabin Jan. 13, Powell County Sheriff Scott Howard said.

The man, 44-year-old Jack McWhorter, had only a few bouillon cubes in his pocket, Howard said. Their two cats and two of their three dogs were also dead.

I guess that survivalist thing didn't work out too well.

I've heard of 4 or 5 people freezing to death in Michigan in the last couple of weeks. then several more committing crimes because incarceration is better than dying. Sad
