Tom On The Homeless
Nice letter from our very own Tom Sebourn in today's Times- Standard. I'll have to take issue with one thing, though. The issue of whether the homeless should be allowed to camp in the City Hall parking lot aside, I don't know that those homeless are all that much worse off because of being run off.
Tom cites the very cold weather at the time of their removal. So? It's not like they were staying inside City Hall or being run out of a National Guard Armory. They were probably just as cold sleeping in that parking lot as they are wherever they're staying now. Unless they actually found a warm place to stay, their exposure to cold hasn't changed much, if at all, from being moved out of that parking lot.
