I think of the late Phillipine First Lady every time I see this snap of the homeless guy sitting outside an even more dilapidated movie theater in San Francisco's Mission District. Mrs. Marcos, you may recall, turned into a pop culture icon in the mid-'80s because of her ostentatious spending habits. When she and hubby Ferdinand ended up fleeing the Phillipines in 1986, she left behind 15 mink coats, 508 gowns, 888 handbags and 1,060 pairs of shoes, according to Wikipedia.
When asked about her profligate spending, Mrs. Marcos most famously said, "People say I'm extravagant because I want to be surrounded by beauty. But tell me, who wants to be surrounded by garbage?"
