My personal experience is the opposite. When I was most desperately poor, unhinged, living in an SRO in one of the worst parts of town, it was the poor people who were the most vicious and hurtful.

I'll take your word for it, Eric. But you might want to remember that famous 1976 Saul Steinberg New Yorker cover. Not all of the poor are street people and not all of them live in large cities.
