"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."
"But we will all be taken down with it."

Later I was hungry so I dashed out the door to go to Subway. The guy was still there. At the subway, ham and turkey were $2.99 for a 6-inch so I decided to buy one for myself and for the guy. I assumed that he would like tomato and mayo, unlike me.
I worried that this might lead to him hanging around the clinic more, hoping for further handouts, possibly bothering other people entering the building. I dismissed that concern, deciding that it wasn't likely, or wasn't likely to be a real problem. I also wondered whether he would just be happier with the $2.99 plus tax, as he can probably get food from soup kitchens, but there are probably lots of little things he needs money for, like toothpaste. But I dismissed that again, mostly on irrational grounds as above.
When I got back from Subway he was gone. I looked around, but all of the homeless people who usually panhandle the fast-moving crowds at 7th and H were gone. Perhaps they were heading off to a soup kitchen for dinner.
I gave the sandwhich to Bernice because she was the first person I saw when I got off the elevator.
