  1. HUD in the town where I live is a rip off the apartments look like he– because they won't take care of them I don't live in the HUD apartments but I know many people who do and the apartments aren't being fixed it's like a slum in most of the apartments not to mention the outside looks horrbile I remember when these apartments we're built they where truly beautiful and we'll maintained that was 43 years ago but the past 30 years the apartments went to he– bad it's sick no one cares they aren't worth living in for the price some people pay it's sick and sad

  2. Dr. Carson is a real gentleman. An American original. God bless him!
