What Kind of Evil Evicts a 100-Year-Old Woman?

In Palm Desert, California, 100-year-old Evelyn Heller represented herself in a trial in which her landlord sought her eviction on grounds she had loud, disruptive arguments with one of her daughters. Heller, who can barely see or hear, lost on April 1 and was ordered to pay more than $1,500 in court costs, attorney's fees, and even prorated rent! Fortunately publicity from the case caught the attention of a local congressman, Rep. Raul Ruiz, and even motivational speaker Tony Robbins who came to her rescue. Ruiz sent social workers to help Heller find a new apartment, and Robbins donated $24,000 -- $1,000 a month for two years. She now lives in La Quinta, where Ruiz, his wife, and Robbins visited her Friday. Chatting over the next 20 minutes, Heller divulged her crush on President Obama and her early hunch that Taylor Swift was going to be famous. She also said, "I don't know how anyone my age can have a bigger day than today." (Newser)
