now this is the real orange county

Channel surfing with la familia looking for something appropriate for all (usually ends up being a documentary of some sort, especially since the littlest bunny seems to prefer them, especially animal/ocean/science ones, to all else). Came across one on HBO called “Homeless, the Motel Kids of Orange County.”

What kind of a world is this where a child, when asked what rights we have as citizens, immediately and proudly says “the right to remain silent,” where kids are so used to bedbug bites that they show them like another would show off a tan, and where a six-year old boy must find his toys in the dumpster (where the belongings of a recently evicted family were tossed)?
