Robert Norris Kahn is a disgusting disgrace to humanity: He's a Trustfund multi-millionaire who has never worked a single HOUR in his waste of a life, who has spent the last 30 years trying to exploit the misery and suffering of the bottom rungs of society.

Has he ever contributed a single penny, or done ANYTHING to help the people he claims to care so much about?

Of course not, his biggest "Accomplishment" was to cost the Taxpayers $120,000 fighting his asinine Nazi Salute gadfly Lawsuit.

Old Stinky would definitely get my vote for biggest media hog and person who made the plight of the homeless much harder through his self-promoting antics.

I'm a homeless activist: I do nothing and claim to be a hero for those that supposedly cannot speak for themselves.

To see John Colby's curriculum shitae, do a Google search on "john e. colby" and visit his LinkedIn page. It's very illuminating...

John Colby endangered several of his so-called "clients" (Steve Lazow and Andrea Morgan) by posting their personal information and pictures on the Internet during the period June through 2 August 2012. In both instances, John posted particularly detailed information about their physical infirmities, health issues, and included several pictures of them on the Internet. In the case of Ms Morgan, twenty-three days after John's post in Indybay, Ms Morgan was robbed.

So, how much did the publishing of Ms. Morgan's health issues, vulnerabilities, and pictures contribute to her becoming a victim of the robbery? How much did the publishing of Ms Morgan's pictures aid the robber in identifying this fragile human being as being a good target for a robbery? John's very quick to remind everyone that he has a PhD in Computer Science and yet even a freshman taking computer science classes knows the dangers of posting personal information on the Internet. As a PhD, John Colby's actions, in that regard, were careless and negligent to the extreme.

John's also careless about posting his own personal information and that of his sister, Pat. Pictures, home address, phone numbers, the list goes on and on. One one occasion, he even posted his credit card number.
