There was an article in The New York Times about Jayson Littman, 26 years old who is financial analyst during the weekdays. On Sundays from 1 PM to 4 PM, he wears a t-shirt that reads: "FREE HUGS" and he erected a sign in Washington Square Park, "FREE HUGS".
With wars and blood flowing freely around the world, Littman figured that everyone needs a hug now and then. No religious, pamphlets and charges at all. It is free hug.
The pictures of Jayson depicted that he's gorgeous guy and ... so gay. One picture showed him trying to bait an elder woman for a hug, but she shrugged him off.
Some people are skeptical of his actions, stood away and stared at him. But ended up being hugged by Jayson.
I think I will check this gentleman out ... when Benis gets back to town so we will observe from afar. Don't want to be infected with these cooties.
