Aegon is discussing:

Shawn Pleasants has the kind of resume that would attract the attention of any job recruiter: high school valedictorian, economics major from Yale University, Wall Street banking jobs, small business entrepreneur. But a few wrong turns in life 10 years ago left him homeless, and today he's living underneath a tarp in the Koreatown section of Los Angeles.

One sentence takes away all empathy from this guy - "He said he began using the drug before he became homeless, but insists it's not what led him to the streets." Really? Drugs didn't make you homeless?
