Comic Relief or Did My Memory Make That Up Too?

Along the same lines as my previous post, does anyone remember why Comic Relief started on HBO? You know, where Robin Williams, Billy Crystal and Whoopi Goldberg got together and proved that for all Whoopi's talent, she couldn't ad-lib the way Robin and Billy could?

I know, we all killed MANY many brain cells back then ESPECIALLY when the special was running, but does anyone remember the reason behind Comic Relief? It was because in the 80's, many many people had to move out of their homes because of foreclosures and the homeless population exploded.

Does anyone remember some of the consequences of that many people homeless? One small offshoot was that mail theft was constant.

Two weeks ago, the post office put up red warning stickers on our building's mailboxes warning of mail theft.

Just wait, as more and more people get desperate over their living situation, more theft, more mail theft, more vandalism etc. will occur. It's just human nature.

Just as it's human nature to forget events 20-30 years ago. *sigh*
