The Makeover Do Over?

For a day or so, Jim Wolf had the most famous face on the Internet. The video of the homeless vet getting a remarkable makeover was viewed more than 15 million times. This week, he was arrested for trespassing and creating a drunken disturbance at a Burger King. I’m not sure this tells us much. I don’t think anyone thought the point of the video was to suggest that a makeover would rid Wolf of all his ills.

+ San Francisco shelled out about $100K on the Batkid event last week. Seems like a small price to pay to make little kid (and the rest of us) feel good for a day. And besides, if I park illegally a few times next week, the city will break even.
