Putting on the Ritz!

He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the lowly . . .

Today it was announced by Los Angeles mayor's office that the Ritz Carlton may participate in sheltering the homeless because the hotel rooms have become unused while the world stays-at-home.  Why the Ritz? It turns out that the Ritz and many luxury hotels have received hundreds of millions of dollars in tax considerations and now may get even more tax help if they help the homeless.

How has it come to this?  Turns out only God can take the least, the poor broken and homeless and exalt them to living in the Ritz where the average room rate is $500 a night! 

The prophet Isaiah spoke of this day, "Every mountain and hill shall be made low and every valley exalted."

Party Games!

"Kind, good, happy, gentle, secure people never go for dictators, but those driven by fear, resentment, insecurity, or self-loathing. They will always fall for it.  It's an amusing game, try it at the next big party you go to."  

Dorothy Thompson, Writer, Reporter, Broadcaster, 1930s/40s Hitler Antagonist, and Married to Author, Sinclair Lewis.
