I live in a large US metropolitan city, our homeless problem I can only describe as unreal. Every degree of mental illness on display for all of the public to see, addiction so strong the person has turned into your nightmare. Everyday, I walk past, I step over, step aside, not stare, not engage. On a weekly basis I walk past people writhing in agony on the streets, suffering from lord knows what. The police see them, doctors, nurses, social workers, everybody sees them. While I of course support affordable housing for all...I really don’t think this is the silver bullet. I hate to sound like an alarmist, but we’re really going to hell in a hand basket here.
