Judas can you Imagine???? Sending out your six year old every day to sell papers no matter what the'd have to be very desperate.

I always wonder what happened to these people. What was Morris Levine's fate? Did he grow into a decent life? Hard start in life, that's for sure.

And note how small he was at 11. I doubt he was spending a day where he wasn't hungry.
