In short, 2012 has been quite fruitful professionally, but his personal situation is still pretty tumultuous due to an unfortunate situation at the State assisted living facility in which he was meant to find shelter.
Jim has recounted repeated incidents of overcrowding, rampant crime, fights, drugs, alleged prostitution, a dangerously mixed environment of mental health patients alongside ex-cons, lax security, and lots of what appears to be deliberate “over-medicating” of residents.
And, never one to keep his thoughts to himself, Jim has reported all of this to the Manhattan DA’s office, the local Councilwoman, and various news outlets.
We’ll see if anything comes of it.
Meanwhile, Jim doesn’t feel safe staying at the apartment for which he’s been paying rent for a year.
Never a dull moment in the life of Jim.
He somehow manages to keep pressing on despite a lot of undue drama in his world, and does so often with a quick laugh and a smile on his face.
Keep helping a brother out.
