anyway.....the thing is this....homeless people are people. yeah...i know that's a cliche. but i think anytime you undertake any kind of targeting..whether it be racial, ethnic, or socio-economic...you are treading on dangerous ground and violating the very basic principles of this country. you are insulting me as a human being. you are taking away whatever dignity i try to maintain. instead of spending money and manpower on trying to force the homeless away, spend the money and manpower on getting them a job and getting them off the street. it would be cheaper and probably alot easier to accomplish and without churning up the ire of local churches and advocacies. and...you would be performing what every politician says he ultimately wants to do....serving all...i stress that word...all your constituents and making a difference in the lives of your citizens.
see you around town
