This morning I was sitting on a park bench next to a homeless man.  I started a conversation by asking him how he ended up this way.

He said, "Up until last week, I still had it all.  I had plenty to eat, my clothes were washed and pressed, 
 
I had a roof over my head, I had TV and Internet, and I went to the gym, the pool, and the library.  
 
I was working on my MBA on-line.  I had no bills and no debt.  I even had full medical coverage."

I felt sorry for him, so I asked, "What happened?  Drugs?  Alcohol? Divorce?"
 


"Oh no, nothing like that," he said.  "No, no.  I got out of prison."
