Mel Young (Homeless World Cup President)

"The Paris 2011 Homeless World Cup is an opportunity for homeless people to move from being invisible to stand proud on a global stage, and be the true ambassadors for their country that they are."

I feel as bad as the next guy about homelessness, and am very aware it could happen to anyone (especially in the Age of Obama), but do they really need a special futball tourney?  And is anyone really stupid enough to think they are "proud" of anything or "ambassadors" for anyone?

"Each player leaves the Homeless World Cup with a medal.  They also receive a once in a life time opportunity to change their lives.  They acquire self-esteem, pride, passion and the tools and strength to better one's own life." - Homeless World Cup website

Utopian idiocy at its finest...But at least these 'winners' get a "medal."
