So the Obama administration wants to end homelessness in ten years, and they’ve released guidelines to that effect. (No funding allocated, though.)

It strikes me that allowing unemployment benefits to lapse and not fighting for mortgage cramdowns to help those losing their homes — while trying to stop homelessness — is like driving a car with one foot on the brake and the other on the accelerator.

    In the reality based neighborhood – your site stands out. Really enjoy your articles, Susie, and read you on C&L regularly.

  3. well, look at it this way: Philadelphia’s Mayor Nutter plans to increase the literacy rate in the city by closing libraries.

    no, it doesn’t make sense to me either.

  4. I think the plan is to starve the homeless. If they’re dead they’re not homeless anymore.
