1. "Are there no workhouses?"

Actually, the answer to that one is "no." They say the GOP wants to take us back to the 1950s, but in this regard they want to take us back to before the Poor Law -- which was no piece of sterling legislation to begin with.

Community harassment of the indigent is nothing new. As with so many things, our big mistake as Americans of reasonably good will has been thinking we had risen above such crap.
