Its always sad to hear of anyone being homeless. It breaks my heart to know this poor man died , alone in his van from a fire ,especially after being in the hospital.. someone had to have known he was living in that van .. someone who could have made a difference in this mans life.

I dont know how much you pay your "journalist", but you need to tighten up WLTX. The headline does not even make sense. You should be embarassed. Do these people even have a GED?

Most of these people would rather be homeless, I watched Okra a couple of weeks ago and they had homeless people they tried to help, and everyone of them would rather be homeless than have any responsibilities. It was too much pressure for them. I think most of them have some type of mental disabilty.

Why are we so negative wrote:
<quoted text> A homeless man dies in a van fire........ pretty self explanatory to me! I know from the get go how the man died.??????? Why do we have to always point oiut wrong doings? Can we not just read the story, and stop and say a prayer for this man?
I know what it meant you moron. It would seem to me that people that write this s hit would proofread a little better.

it's not, Denmark is according to the CIA Factbook, they enjoy a standard of living second to no one in the world. America is still good and definitely the most powerful though.

Go take a trip to Mexico, Europe, or Asia and see how life is in those countries are. You might begin to understand that although our country is not perfect, it's still the best deal around. There are plenty of people living on the streets or dusty roads who would consider themselves lucky to even have a van to sleep in. Who knows what led this old guy to his fate and the tragic nature of his death, but bashing the whole country doeswn't help. Expecting the government of a country of 300 Million people to have been involved or even be held somehow liable for it, is streaching things a bit to far.
