Some people will not be happy no matter what solution is proposed. In Burlington there was a repeliccan who provided bus tickets - bus tickets! - to anywhere in the country, for those who were homeless.

They all came back. haha

Yeah. Didn't NYC just do that recently as well? The lengths that they go to as a way to avoid the issues are insane.

I don't know about NYC - could be.

But yes, issue avoidance is a chronic condition. We just seem to create new and innovative fencing solutions. That's about it.

They made it illegal to feed the homeless in Tampa. How fucked up is that?

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (21783) 1 year ago

Not just Tampa. It is way fucked up.
