The battle rages on: those for and those against the right to camp on public grounds in the city. Today campsites were removed because rats are infesting the area. I’m opposed to camping of this sort and am pretty sure that even most who advocate FOR public camping are only supportive as a way to apply extreme pressure to dramatically increase services for the homeless.
It’s a complicated problem, and I won’t attempt to weigh in with solutions. My wife urges me to be positive so here it is: I’m fortunate that I look at it rather than live in it.
